Grails under Eclipse and native2ascii

Grails is a very nice framework for agile development. Unfortunately, its integration with Eclipse is not quite what it could be. I had to struggle a bit with running the applications under Eclipse. In particular, the native2ascii command is invoked to translate properties files, and doesn't work by default. In order to fix:
  1. Make sure you have a JDK installed, and add tools.jar to your path
  2. Make sure you have ant-nodeps.jar added to your path
