Mr. Groovy at Prague Sun site

Yesterday (Wed18th), thanks to the ServerSide symposium happening in Prague, we had a chance to chat with Guillaume Laforge, the Groovy guy.

Guillaume visited the Prague's Sun site, where he gave a presentation on Groovy success stories, to describe where and how the Groovy is used and how it helps in development/production environments, then we had a chance to chat and ask some questions.

Grails and web service development with Metro

I searched through my blog entries, and realized that I somehow forgot to blog about the Metro Plugin for Grails framework I introduced in the beginning of this year. So, this is an attempt to do a (late) little advertising.

If you use Grails, you are certainly aware of it's plugin system. I decided to wrote a little Metro plugin which enables you to expose your Groovy/Grails classes as Metro web services in a simple and easy way using natural Grails commands, such as

grails create-service

and natural Metro annotations, such as @WebService, like this:

import javax.jws.\*
@WebService(targetNamespace="http://com.calculator")
class CalculatorService {
@WebMethod
def int add(int i, int j) {
return i+j;
}
@WebMethod
def multiply(int i, int j) {
return i\*j;
}
}

Those are the only things you need to do to develop web services with Grails after installing the plugin. You can find exact installation/how to use instructions at plugin website. Currently I host the plugin as a subproject of JAX-WS Commons project, but am working on making sure it is hosted at Grails plugin site as well.

Btw, I recently found also these instructions on how to use the Metro Grails plugin to develop contract-first (WSDL first) web services, which gives exactly the areas where I planned to improve the plugin in. So in future, the instructions might get even more simple.

Firefox download day tomorrow!

I just received following email:

The show starts tomorrow! I'm already running Firefox RC3, and really curious how will the download day go ;O) There's only ~5000 pledges from Czech Republic which is a bit dissapointing for me. I believe the real download numbers will be much higher.

With Geertjan's help, my article about Metro use in NetBeans has been published to NetBeans Zone. Enjoy! And vote for it if you like it ;O)

New features in Metro 1.3 with NetBeans 6.1

Couple of people asked about availability of the new features I described earlier. The bits there point to NetBeans 6.5 builds. Question is whether you can use the same bits for NetBeans 6.1?
Unfortunately the answer so far is no, it is not possible. However, come here for updates.

I've tried to keep the bits the same, but there has been a change in classpath apis which didn't allow me to produce the same artefacts for both 6.5 and 6.1 builds. There's also a WS server api redesign planned for 6.5. So, I'll try to provide the build, but we'll see.
