Abstract: You?ve seen Grails and Groovy, you?ve watch some screen casts, you?ve read a few tutorials, you are completely taken in by the productivity it can offer you. You are ready to jump in with both feet. You download and install Grails. You run grails create-app.
Now what? What do you go from here? Your IDE/command prompt is waiting for you to take the next step.
Grails isn?t just about traditional MVC web apps. We?ll explore how to use Grails to build a web service backend. We?ll talk about GORM as well as some of the new features such as named queries, named URL mapping, and how to create services. We then explore how to secure our Grails app using Spring security plugin.
