Graeme Rocher introduces Groovy and its corresponding web framework, Grails, followed by a code writing demo intended to highlight the advantages of using Grails over Java EE in order to develop web applications.
In this session, Guillaume Laforge, Groovy project manager, will walk you through a rapid introduction to Groovy, to get you up-to-speed with this popular JVM language. Then, he will guide you throughout demos on how to build some Web 2.0 mashups in a few lines of Groovy code, as well as how to deploy Grails application in the cloud. He’ll then close the session showing you various ways you can leverage Groovy to even further streamline and simplify the development of App Engine applications, thanks to several tips and tricks …
The Java platform has always been strong in providing a rock-solid,â€¨scalable and performing base for web applications. Unfortunately, this â€¨came at the expense of development pleasure. This time is over. Learn howâ€¨ Grails puts the awesome power of the JEE platform right at yourâ€¨fingertips, standing on the should of giants like Spring, Hibernate,â€¨Quartz and others. Watch how a full-blown, database backed, CRUD-enabled,â€¨ tested and ajaxified JEE web application gets created right before your eyes.
Ted demonstrates how his private MacBook uses Grails to connect to a MS SQL server using the new JDBC 4 driver for MS SQL. We thought we give this some extra footage. Ted demonstrates the Northwind database and scaffolded UI for these tables based on newly created domain classes.
In this session Graeme Rocher, SpringSource’s Head of Grails Development, will demonstrate how the basics of Twitter could have been built using Grails and JMS in a mere 40 minutes. A fast paced and code-driven presentation, Graeme will build a Twitter-like application from scratch using Grails and its rapid application development capability. By bringing together Spring, JMS and Java persistence techniques Graeme will also provide advanced tips and techniques for constructing Grails applications that can be deployed on to the Java EE platform.Â …
