This Week in Grails (2011-45)

Groovy 1.8.4 and a beta of Groovy 2.0 (renamed from Groovy 1.9) were released this week. Check out Guillaume’s post on what’s new, including static type checking and support for Java 7’s invokedynamic.

Peter Ledbrook did a webinar on new features in Grails 2.0 (“Better Productivity: Grails 2.0”) and you can watch it here.

I wrote a few posts this week; it seems weird to write “real” posts instead of just these summaries 🙂 Check out Accessing the GrailsApplication and ApplicationContext from domain classes without holders, Overriding Groovy constructors, and Create your own Grails holder class.

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.
