Overview

For web developers used to wrestling with Java and XML, Grails is a breath of fresh air. Developers are instantly productive, picking up all the benefits of the
Ruby-based Rails framework without giving up any of the power of Java.

Grails in Action is a comprehensive look at Grails for Java developers. It covers the nuts and bolts of the core Grails components and is jam-packed with tutorials, techniques, and insights from the trenches.

The book starts with an overview of Grails and how it can help you get your web dev mojo back. Then it walks readers through a Twitter-style social networking app-built in Grails, of course-where they implement high-interest features like mashups, AJAX/JSON, animation effects, full text search, rounded corners,
and lots of visual goodness. The book also covers using Grails with existing Java technology, like Spring, Hibernate, and EJBs.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.

Let me tell you. Like so many programming books this one is dated after only 2+ years. We can call that progress. I'm finding that the upgrades to Oracle JDK and Grails itself make this book challenging. Then again, making the examples work is giving me a hard-knocks lesson in Grails. So, yes, I recommend the book. I also recommend an updated version of the books by the authors.
