New Grails Tutorial - And Other Grails and Groovy Adoption
By pelegri on Dec 14, 2008
NetBeans continues to add support for Groovy and Grails as well as new tutorials. Check the Intro to Groovy, the NetBeans.TV Screencast and the new Introduction to Grails (thanks to Charles for the tip).
Since Groovy fits very easily into Java it is easy to use with GlassFish: see Alexis' Zero to Grails in 5 and the GFv3 Prelude Docs. Also check out GroovyBlogs - Glen Smith has been running it on GlassFish v2 (Netcraft Report) for several months.
There is a clear resurgence of scripting on JVM and Groovy was very popular at Devoxx last week (see Sven's photo of the Whiteboard) - with the usual note on Sampling Errors! Related entries at TheAquarium are tagged scripting.
