Get Groovier with Grails
Inspired by the Ruby on Rails project, Grails brings the ease of web development and "convention over configuration" to the Java platform. We will learn how to create web applications using Grails, how to integrate it with Hibernate, and how to Ajax it, all using the built in features of Grails. This section assumes that you are familiar with Groovy or you have attended the “Groovy for Java Programmers” session. The session will be example driven with live coding where we will build a web application from scratch.
In this session you will learn *How to create web application using Grails * Understand Grails Conventions * Learn how to use the code generators and how to manual create domain models, controllers, and view * AJAX your application * Integrate with database
