Grails Deep Dive
You've heard about how easy it is to build web apps with Grails. Maybe you've even seen the simple CRUD app in a blink of an eye, but do you want to see what Grails is really capable of? Then join us as we walk through the construction of a real web application with this powerful framework. Along the way we'll see how to take advantage of Grails' features like GORM, service classes, custom tags, and URL mapping.
You'll be amazed at how quickly you can become productive with Grails, not just because of scaffolding but because of the power of “Convention over Configuration,” sensible defaults, and the dynamic goodness of Groovy - all applied to a suite of the best tools in the industry, such as Spring, Hibernate, Tomcat, Ant, Sitemesh, JUnit, and more.
Prerequisite: A general knowledge of what Grails is.
