Grails is the ultimate Java rapid application development environment (RAD). Using the lightweight but powerful Groovy language sitting on top of the JVM, you can put together a complete application in a fraction of time as “normal” web-app development. This introductory session to Grails will cover the new Grails 1.2 release using lots of
code examples. We’ll use The new Eclipse-Groovy/Grails plugin to create a complete app during the session. We’ll also use some of the hundreds of plugins available for Grails. These plugins offer
easy-to-use features such as rich internet, security, clustering, etc.
