A Thorough Introduction To Grails
Grails represents technology that offers great flexibility and power without the complexity introduced by other Java web application frameworks. Custom tag libraries are a snap. GSP Templates provide a simple mechanism for reusing UI elements. Sitemesh is integrated to help provide a consistent presentation across the entire application. GORM is super powerful ORM. Grails provides simple mechanisms for leveraging the power of Ajax.
This session will cover all of the fundamentals of the framework and will serve as a thorough introduction to developers not familiar with the framework and also include a number of tips and tricks for developers who do have experience with the framework.
