Create Real-World Web Applications using Grails with New Book from Packt

Monday, June 8, 2009 | News | Java

Grails 1.1 Web Application Development is a new book from Packt that guides developers through building web applications using the Groovy scripting language. Written by Jon Dickinson, this book focuses on creating, testing and deploying a web application in Grails.

Grails is an open source web application framework which leverages the Groovy programming language, making it easier to develop web applications. Through the examples in this book, users will learn about Groovy which will help them build their first Grails application.

This book introduces developers to the dynamic JVM-based Groovy programming language, and through this, will help them understand the relationship between Grails and the Groovy scripting language. The reader will also learn how to use Grails with AJAX and a number of key plug-ins, such as the RICHUI plug-in and JSecurity plug-in, to deliver secure web applications and solve common problems.

Through this book, users will learn to provide an API through REST by developing a REST service interface. Along with a RESTful API they will be able to expose their application to other developers as well. Using Grails Object-Relational Mapper, users will be able to reduce object persistence issues. Furthermore, developers will be taught how to handle file uploads and versioning, thereby allowing users to share files.

Java web developers interested in building web applications quickly will find this book useful. The book is available from Packt. For more information, please visit: Grails 1.1 Web Application Development
