From: Jean B.

Announcing a new Meetup for The New York Groovy / Grails Meetup Group!

What: When GSP is not enough - using ZK RIA Framework for Grails

BTW, if somebody has something cool to show (10-15 minutes), please let me know - would be good to get somebody else to show off their stuff, we'll add you to the schedule.

When: Tuesday, September 28,[masked]:30 PM

Where: EMC Offices
2 Penn Plaza 18th floor
New York, NY 10001

After a summer hiatus, it's time to kick things back into high gear.

This is a preview of Spring2GX Talk in Chicago.

The ZK Framework ( is a RIA AJAX framework that encourages server side development to create Rich Internet Application. It abstracts AJAX calls for you and allows you to code all of your UI logic in Groovy or Java, without having to spend a lot of time worrying about generated HTML / CSS / JavaScript, and getting all those technologies to work together along with Grails backend. The ZKGrails integrates ZK with Grails, including automatic component binding with GORM.

As a result you can use Grails strengths (GORM, Services) along with the productivity of ZK framework.

In this talk, we will talk about where the traditional view technologies in Grails fall short (if you want a rich user experience), and how ZK Grails helps fill the gap (Vaadin, a similar framework, will be briefly discussed).

Please make sure to give your full name when RSVPing, we will need it for security.
