5 Minute Video: How Grails Does AJAX

Brief introduction, which should be fleshed out a bit at some point, but provides an introduction:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.netbeans.tv/js/swfobject.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> </script>

Read more about it, with related links, here on NetBeans.tv.

In other news. The sound quality of the screencast above is much better than previously. Why? Because I found the "Remove Noise" button in Camtasia. Seriously, is that something that I should have to explicitly invoke? Why would I want to KEEP the noise?!


For people who do not have internet access at home or office, is there anyway to download the videos on netbeans.tv for offline viewing?

Very Nice Grails Ajax Demo. Short Simple and to the point. You know, . . . Having seen some of your Groovy / Grails Net Bean Demos, . . . I think I might have to give it a try.

Thanks for talking the time to share this.

I agree, I like to watch these offline since I can't get the "double click to watch full screen" to work, and if you don't full screen it, you can't see what's going on.

Meanwhile, if I watch it in mplayer, I can set it to be whatever size I want.

That last one had a nice way to download it.

It appears the <option> tag is not supported in Grails 1.0.3
Instead, in <g:select onchange="...", add
as documented at

Great video !!! Is it possible to you prepare complete examples of the use of g:formRemote and other ajax tags.
