Grails is a Java- and Groovy-based web framework that is built for speed. First-time developers are amazed at how quickly you can get a page-centric MVC web site up and running thanks to the scaffolding and convention over configuration that Grails provides. Advanced web developers are often pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to leverage their existing Spring and Hibernate experience.
"Getting Started with Grails" brings you up to speed on this modern web framework. Companies as varied as LinkedIn, Wired, Tropicana, and Taco Bell are all using Grails. Are you ready to get started as well?
The second edition of "Getting Started with Grails" in now available for free on InfoQ, or you can buy the print version for only $22.95. The first edition was great so I'm really looking forward to reading the update.
