one thing i quite like about scala is that ability to run it in “interpreted” mode via the scala command. that allows me — similiar to python or ipython — to experiment and quickly try things out or even test my classes and objects.

what was a bit of a pain was getting the proper classpath constructed so that not only target/classes was picked up but also all the required dependencies. poking a bit around in maven’s plugin documentation i came across the dependency plugin and in particular the dependency:build-classpath mojo, armed with that information i came up with the following rather useful shell script:

save under a convenient name, stir, and enjoy: call this script instead of calling scala directly.
