I’ve started working with Grails on a new project, and as part of this work I’m documenting as I go what is involved.
Here’s my latest article covering how to create a new web pap from scratch using the Grails framework. From these few steps you can be up and running with a web app and generated scaffolding code giving you basic CRUD functionality in no time.
If you haven’t seen Grails yet, take a look at these steps to see how little effort is involved. And if you were shying away from Ruby on Rails because you spend the majority of your time living and working in the Java world, then Grails may be for you as it is based on Groovy, a Java based scripting language that runs on the Java VM.
