This Week in Grails (2013-09)

We released Grails 2.1.4 and 2.2.1 this week; they are primarily bug fix releases.

Registration for GR8Conf Europe 2013 is now open. Be sure to sign up soon while the prices are very low.

I’ve been seeing a lot of buzz about Dropwizard as a framework for creating REST services. I thought it would be interesting to integrate it with Grails, but it ended up being a lot more work than I expected since the two approaches are very different, and very opinionated. I have an initial implementation available of a plugin and will add some docs and a sample application soon.

If you want to keep up with these “This Week in Grails” posts you can access them directly via their category link or in an RSS reader with the feed for just these posts.
