[GRADLE-1243] use GROOVY_HOME as the default Groovy version, analogous to JAVA_HOME Created: 02/Dec/10  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

when using
apply plugin:'java'
I don't have to define any dependency to the java version in use.

But when using
apply plugin:'groovy'
I have to declare the mavenCentral() repository and the groovy dependency.

It would be much more convenient if the Groovy plugin would use the default Groovy version if available. As default, I would expect whatever $GROOVY_HOME/bin/groovy -v returns.
Of course, explicit specification of the groovy version overrules the default.

Alternatively, one could go for a solution like
apply plugin:'groovy', version:'1.7.5'

the priority should be lower but I couldn't quite figure out how to decrease it, sorry.
