Subject chdir() implementation requested in groovy, just like jruby
Date Sun, 05 Jul 2015 18:26:08 GMT
jvm has no chdir() function to change current working directory.

As groovy positions itself as competitor to jruby and other scripting
language, and jruby implements chdir() using JNR (not using JNI)

jython also implements chdir() on its own, but its implementation has some
limtation. And jruby's implementation of chdir() function is best and

I have filed an enhancement request of adding a chdir() function to groovy
using JNA or JNR.
I have given sample code to achieve this using JNA.

please give your feedback at
for this enhancement feature request.
