This Week in Grails (2012-03)

You only have a few more weeks to get your talk proposals in for GR8Conf EU and US. The EU page is here and the US page is here; both conferences have a February 15th deadline.

Lots of Spring Security items this week. I broke war deployment in the spring-security-core 1.2.7 release so I released version to address that. There’s a new plugin to integrate a Shibboleth native SP, and one for mock authentication. And Carsten Block did a blog post on restricting concurrent user sessions (also see the updated post).

Check out Tsuyoshi Yamamoto’s summary of the Groovy & Grails eXchange 2011 in London. Lots of cool photos, including one of the three developers of the Acegi plugin – it was the first time we were all in the same place together.

I released a new plugin this week to help with deploying applications to JBoss. Each version of JBoss has various things that need to be done to get an app deployed, so I thought it’d be best to encapsulate that in a plugin that does the work for you. It works with version 5 and 6, but no support for version 7 since there isn’t one that supports Grails yet (due various bugs that will hopefully be addressed in 7.2).
