      Description

      Running groovy from within another script does not give the real exit value of the groovy process. Try any of the following:

      perl -e "system('groovy -e \"System.exit(1)\"');print $?>>8"
      ruby -e "system('groovy.bat -e \"System.exit(1)\"');print $?>>8"
      groovy -e "p='groovy.bat -e \"System.exit(1)\"'.execute();p.waitFor();println p.exitValue()"

      To see that the above examples are correct in catching the exit code, try e.g.

      ruby -e "system('ruby -e \"exit(2)\"');print $?>>8"
      groovy -e "def p='ruby -e \"exit(2)\"'.execute();;p.waitFor();println p.exitValue()"

      Adding

      exit %ERROR_LEVEL%

      to the end of groovy.bat solves the problem but is not usable as it causes command prompt to exit if running groovy directly (i.e. not via some other script).
