The GroovyConsole AST browser doesn't use the same classloader for the AST BRowser.
1. Open groovyConsole and import a JAR using the Script menu item.
2. Write a script that uses something out of that JAR
3. Open AST Browser
4. AST browser will show a ClassNodeFOund exception for anything out of the JAR
I suspect that the classes are being loaded into the classloader GroovyConsole uses to execute the script but not the classloader used to execute AST Browser.
