InfoQ Book: Getting Started With Grails

In this lastest InfoQ book, author Jason Rudolph introduces Grails, an open-source, rapid web application development framework that provides a super-productive full-stack programming model based on the Groovy scripting language and built on top of Spring, Hibernate, and other standard Java frameworks. Over the course of this book, the reader will explore the various aspects of Grails and also experience Grails by building a Grails app.

Read: Getting Started With Grails

Ruby on Rails pioneered the innovative coupling of a powerful programming language and an opinionated framework that favors sensible defaults over complex configuration, but many organizations aren't yet ready to stray from the safety of Java or forgo their current Java investments. Grails makes it possible to achieve equivalent productivity in a Java-centric environment.  Jason's book covers:
  • Grails setup and configuration
  • Quickly generating and customizing a Grails web application
  • Solving common web application challenges with Grails
  • Securing and testing Grails applications
  • Deploying and monitoring
The book also comes with source code for each chapter.

The author of the book, Jason Rudolph, also wrote the article Grails + EJB Domain Models Step-by-Step which was one of InfoQ's top 5 Java articles in 2006. You can find Jason online at   See also InfoQ's Grails mini-portal at:
