MAIN TOPIC ABSTRACT
Griffon is best described by analogy: "Grails for the Desktop." A runtime and build framework for Java Swing applications leveraging Groovy and the Grails build system to simplify and rationalized desktop and rich client applications.
Griffon got it's start as the SwingBuilder in Groovy, it was one of the original builders developed in Groovy as a proof of concept for the Builder pattern. While the SwingBuilder is still at Griffon's core, other dynamic features of Groovy really allow Griffon to transform how Swing applications can be written.
The presentation will cover
- Overview of the rails inspired conventions as applied to a desktop application
- Drill down on how each of the values applies to Griffon
- A whizzy demo application.
