Getting Started with Groovy and Grails

4 Day On-Site or 28-Hour Online Instructor Hands-On Training

This course teaches web developers how to use the Grails framework to rapidly create sophisticated web applications. Starting with a foundation of basic Java, students learn the fundamentals of the Groovy programming language. The course then discusses how Grails uses convention over configuration to build applications that rest on the foundation of the Spring Framework and the Hibernate Object­Relational Mapping API. Applications are built using a standard layered architecture, combining domain classes, controllers, and transactional services. Recent developments in the framework are also covered, including plugins, test driven development, and RESTful web services.

This course uses Grails version 2.5, but the information is applicable for versions 2.3 and 2.4 as well.
