This Week in Grails (2013-06)

Monday, February 11th, 2013

Several videos from Greach 2013 are now available on their YouTube channel.

Marc Palmer has announced that he will no longer be supporting any of his plugins (at least not for free). We’re looking into what makes the most sense for moving forward, especially for the more popular plugins like resources. Several of them will be moved to shared Github repos so the community can easily contribute. Be sure to check out his Kickstarter campaign and contribute so the outstanding issues in the resources plugin can get fixed.

There are two excellent looking Grails training opportunities coming up in the next few months. One starts this week and is a 10-week seminar at UC Berkeley. The other is a 2-day seminar in Boston April 22nd – 23rd.

The Groovy team is looking into updating the Groovy documentation and web site.

Check out these two interesting Groovy wiki pages: Advanced compiler configuration and Meta-annotations.

Season 2 of the Spanish-language Podcast de GrailsMX is starting soon. It sure would be cool to have an English-language Groovy and Grails podcast ;)

This Week in Grails (2013-04)

Sunday, February 03rd, 2013

Greach was this week and it was great. It was my first time visiting Spain, so that was an added bonus. The Spanish Groovy and Grails community is apparently thriving, and the attendance was about the same as Groovy & Grails Exchange and GR8Conf, if not higher. There are already some blog posts up and several speakers have put their slides online:

The Groovy team released Groovy 2.1 this week (and made the announcement live during Cedric’s keynote at Greach). Groovy now has full support for invokedynamic, which promises huge performance increases. Note that the 2.1 release notes currently don’t describe how to use the “indy” jars; see the 2.0 release notes for that information.

Andre Steingress released a few blog posts describing some new features in 2.1:

Gradle 1.4 was released this week. There is a description of the plans for 1.5 here, and you can see a short video overview of the 1.4 highlights here.

Marc Palmer’s resources plugin Kickstarter is now live. Nearly everything you use for Grails development is free (except for IntelliJ Ultimate if that’s your IDE of choice) but real people do the work to provide you with Grails and the plugins and tools you use daily. It would be great if we were all paid to do this work (I’m very lucky that I am) but we’re not. The project us currently funded at 10% so contribute soon.

Cedric Champeau’s talk on type checking extensions at Greach was very interesting, and he’s added some documentation for the feature. Check out his slides and the video of the talk when it’s available.

There are only two weeks left to submit talks for the EU and US GR8Conf conferences – the deadline is February 15th.

This Week in Grails (2013-03)

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

The Groovy team announced the second release candidate for Groovy 2.1.0 this week, and they’ve already released RC3 since then. This should be the final RC before 2.1.0 final.

The Griffon team released version 1.2.0 this week.

Marc Palmer is doing some interesting experiments with paid Grails plugin development, maintenance and documentation. He’s testing the waters with an e-book for the email-confirmation plugin, and is looking into how interested people are in a book on the resources plugin. And he should have a KickStarter campaign going soon to fund the development effort to clear the backlog of bugs and feature requests for the resources plugin. It’ll be interesting to see if the historically cheap Java-based community will be willing to dig into their wallets :)

Greach is this week, it will be Friday and Saturday in Madrid. Tickets are still available. Two tracks, a great lineup of speakers, Madrid. What more could you ask for?

The call for papers for the two GR8Conf conferences ends in a few weeks on February 15th. Get those talk proposals submitted, here for the EU conference and here for the US conference.

This Week in Grails (2013-02)

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

Graeme wrote about the new Aether-based depedency resolution approach in 2.3. Aether is missing a few features that Ivy has but makes up for that in several ways, in particular by being significantly faster.

The Groovy team released an RC of Groovy 2.1. Lots of cool stuff there, the most interesting to me being support for invokedynamic. This promises to bring huge performance increases without any annotations or code changes (as long as you’re using a JDK version that supports it).

This Week in Grails (2013-01)

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

The big news of this week is that there is finally a book available that covers Grails 2, Jeff and Graeme’s The Definitive Guide to Grails 2. There’s even photographic proof that it’s shipping :)

If you’re considering submitting talk proposals to either or both of GR8Conf Europe and GR8Conf US be sure to do so soon; the deadline is February 15. Submit for the US conference here and the EU conference here, and if you want to submit for both you can do that from either site.

I released two new plugins this week. The first was the database-migration-jaxb plugin which was going to be part of the database-migration plugin but it requires Java 7 or higher (more specifically JAXB 2.2 or higher) so I released it as an addon instead. It adds a new approach to creating database migrations – writing them programmatically using JAXB-generated classes. I wrote about this and the big new 1.3 release of the database-migration plugin in this blog post.

The other new plugin is spring-security-shiro which adds the ability to use Shiro’s easy and powerful ACLs and permissions alongside Spring Security and the spring-security-core plugin. See this blog post for more information.

This Week in Grails (2012-52)

Wednesday, January 02nd, 2013

Tomas Lin published a great blog post with a large collection of Grails testing resources.
Be sure to register your support for Marc Palmer’s proposed book on the resources plugins.

The Greach conference is getting closer, only a few weeks away. Do you have your ticket yet?

I released a new plugin this week, the lazylob plugin. It adds support for lazy loading of BLOB and CLOB domain class properties so you don’t have to artificially split your domain class into a one-to-one just to avoid the cost of loading large object data when you load domain class instances.

This Week in Grails (2012-51)

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

There were a few Groovy and Grails releases this week. Grails 2.2 was released and there are many new features but the big one is that it uses Groovy 2.0. Grails 2.1.3 was also released and includes fixes for the 2.1.x line.

Groovy 2.0.6 was released with several fixes and improvements, and the first beta of Groovy 2.1 was released. It looks like 2.1 will have some very interesting new features.

Also, GPars 1.0 was released this week.

There were a few writeups about the Groovy & Grails Exchange last week:

and a few more interesting tweets:

I forgot to mention when discussing GGX last week that Yu Sudo took some great photos during the conference. While the rest of us were using our cell phones to take mediocre shots (and often making them worse with Instagram filters) he was using a real camera. I didn’t know people still used real cameras :) Check out his stuff on Flickr.

I updated my old Spring MVC plugin this week and wrote up why you would use it here. I also released a new plugin that adds support for Logback.

This Week in Grails (2012-50)

Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

The big news of this week was the 2012 Groovy & Grails Exchange in London. Lots of great content this year, and attendance was up 40% from last year. It’s always a great conference thanks to the fine folks at Skills Matter who run the conference and many other events throughout the year. They’re great about getting videos of the talks online quickly and you can check them out at the conference schedule – click through each talk to the full description. There was a lot of Twitter activity – search on the #ggx hashtag. Here are several of the more interesting ones, including several links to presentations and sample code:

In addition, Grails 2.1.2 was released with some fixes for the 2.1.x line (note that the distribution is now ~120MB since it includes source and Javadoc), and Grails 2.2.0 RC4 was released. This will be the final RC release before the 2.2 GA release and it includes Groovy 2.0, so you should definitely check it out and start looking now at upgrading.

The Spring Loaded JVM agent that we use in Grails 2.0+ for code reloading was open-sourced this week.

The folks at Canoo released Open Dolphin which integrates Enterprise applications with Java Desktop applications.

I released a new plugin, the tcpmon plugin. It provides the TCPMon proxy tool which can help with debugging web services and rest APIs.

This Week in Grails (2012-48)

Tuesday, December 04th, 2012

The 2012 Groovy & Grails Exchange is next week – better get your tickets before they sell out.

The early bird price for the Greach conference has been extended until December 12, so grab a ticket before the price goes up.

Peter Ledbrook left VMware last week. It’s obviously a big loss for us, but potentially your gain since you can now hire him as a consultant :)

I released a new plugin this week, app-info-hibernate and wrote a blog post about it and the updated db-reverse-engineer plugin.
