Grails: Groovy Ruby On Rails

What is Grails

Grails aims to bring the "coding by convention" paradigm to Groovy. It's an open-source web application framework that leverages the Groovy language and complements Java Web development. You can use Grails as a standalone development environment that hides all configuration details or integrate your Java business logic.

Grails has been specifically designed and developed to attract new developers to the Java platform. If you are a developer of web applications whether it be with PHP, Perl or Python the concepts in Grails will make you feel at home. Grails shields much of the technicalities away from the developer and offers a gentle introduction to the Groovy language and Grails. If you have a basic understanding of programming techniques you will be able to start using Grails straight away.

If you are a seasoned Java developer you will find Grails much easier to develop complex web based applications than other MVC frameworks. You can enjoy the seamless integration of AJAX and database access, also when using existing code bases.
