Grails Cannot Build Ellucian SSB Application

Applies to Banner 9 and Grails 2.5

After cloning a Banner 9 SSB app and adding the plugins, it will not compile! The underlying problem is that in some cases Grails looses the core repository when it is trying to install some dependencies. These are examples of messages that may indicate this problem:

| Error An error occurred installing the plugin [markdown-1.0.0.RC1]: Unable to delete file C:\Users\Administrator\.grails\2.5.0\projects\SelfServiceBannerGeneralEventManagement\plugins\markdown-1.0.0.RC1\lib\remark-0.9.3.jar
