Provides integration with Google Protocol Buffers – a language-neutral, platform-neutral, extensible way of serializing structured data for use in communications protocols, data storage, and more.


This plugin requires you to have a valid protoc compiler installed. Follow the installation instructions laid out in the java tutorial. Once installed you must instruct the build where to locate the protoc executable. Edit griffon-app/conf/BuildConfig.groovy with the following content

google.protobuf.protoc = "/usr/local/bin/protoc" // change this path to your own path

Place your .proto sources at $basedir/src/protobuf. They will be automatically compiled to java sources (and classes) whenever the application is compiled. Alternatively you may call the protoc command to compile protobuf sources at any time.


Protobuf version currently supported is 2.4.1.


  • protoc - compiles protobuf sources (.proto) then compiles the generated java sources.
