Book Description

Dig deeper into Grails architecture and discover how this application framework works its magic. Written by a core developer on the Grails team, this practical guide takes you behind the curtain to reveal the inner workings of its 2.0 feature set. You will learn best practices for building and deploying Grails applications, including performance, security, scaling, tuning, debugging, and monitoring.

Understand how Grails integrates with Groovy, Spring, Hibernate, and other Jvm technologies, and learn how to create and use plugins to augment your application’s functionality. Once you know how Grails adds behavior by convention, you can solve problems more easily and develop applications more intuitively.

This will be a fairly advanced Grails book, focusing on the 2.0 feature set. Although it will cover some introductory material, it will presume that readers have read more introductory books, already have experience with Grails, or are coming to Grails from other web development frameworks.

By understanding the motivation and (without being overly detailed) the implementation of various core ideas in Grails, it's the author's hope that it will make development more intuitive and natural, with less memorization and copy & paste. This will also help with problem solving, since Grails adds a lot of invisible behavior by convention, and when that fails or doesn't work as expected it can be very frustrating determining what went wrong and how to move forward.

This book brings you up to speed on this modern web framework. Companies as varied as LinkedIn, Wired, Tropicana, and Taco Bell are all using Grails. Are you ready to get started as well?
