grails package-plugin

The plug-in archive will be named with the convention grails-name-version.zip. The name and version are obtained from the plug-in descriptor (the Groovy class ending with the convention GrailsPlugin.groovy) in the root of the plug-in directory. For example the following plug-in:

class SimpleGrailsPlugin {
    def version = 0.1
}

Will result in a zip archive called grails-simple-0.1.zip, which can then be installed into an application with the install-plugin command.
