If you install this plugin to your application, you can invoke any Grails commands on an interactive mode, which started up in advance on a console, from other processes via a TCP. This means that you can quickly run a test which is opened in you favorite editor or IDE. If you've appropriately set them up, you'd have only to push a key in order to run it.
