  • First practical “real world” code cookbook that includes both Groovy language and its Groovy-based Web framework, Grails
  • Groovy and Grails remain early in their adoption cycle, but is starting to attract more and more of the corporate customer who would prefer Groovy and Grails for their already existing Java-based legacy IT infrastructure than to “change” all together in order to use Ruby on Rails, at least as perceived
  • Groovy/Grails can integrate with other hot Java technologies like Spring Framework and Hibernate
Groovy and Grails Recipes is the busy developer's guide to developing applications in Groovy and Grails. Rather than boring you with theoretical knowledge of “yet another language/framework,” this book delves straight into solving real–life problems in Groovy and Grails using easy–to–understand, well–explained code snippets. Through learning by example, you will be able to pick up on Groovy and Grails quickly and use the book as an essential reference when developing applications.
