What is Grails?

Grails, which once referred to as Groovy on Grails, is a Groovy framework that also drew its inspiration from the ever popular framework Ruby on Rails. Grails is specifically designed to be a highly productive framework thanks to its promotion of coding by convention and its focus on the use of the very best development practices. Applications developed with Grails are used to run on a Java virtual machine (JVM). Developers particularly appreciate its low learning curve that makes the writing of web applications both rapid and easy. You’ll discover a large community of existing plugins that you can reuse to extend Grails to your specific needs. These are designed to save what is most valuable to you; your time. Features that make it different than other Java frameworks include its no XML configuration, its ready-to-use environment and its available functionality via mixins.

Grails was developed by Graeme Rocher. Version .1 was released in March, 2006. The original name of Grails was “Groovy on Rails”. However that name was changed after the request was made by the developer of Ruby on Rails David Heinemeier Hansson. Rocher continued to develop Grails until version 1.0 was released in February 2008. g2One, the company under which Grails was created by Rocher and his partners, was purchased by SpringSource in November 2008. Both Rocher and Grails co-founder Jeff Brown continue to lead the Grails production team.

Grails Features

Here are just a few of the features that have helped Grails grow into one of the most popular web development frameworks.

  • Easy to learn – The Groovy language, reasonable default settings and its APIs all make Grails an intuitive framework for developers to use and learn.
  • Time saving solution – Grails was built on top of Spring Boot helping developers save time when building their applications.
  • Increased productivity – You get the many advantages of Groovy to help increase your development speed. Groovy is a high powered, dynamic and optionally typed web development language.
  • Seamless integration of Java – Grails works easily with Java, Java EE containers and JVM.
  • Integration with GORM – Groovy uses GORM, is a toolkit offering powerful APIs for accessing both your non-relational and relational data. GORM can also integrate with other database solutions like Neo4j, MongoDB, Cassandra and SQL Hibernate.
  • Rest APIs – Grails uses application profiles React and Angular giving developers the option to write REST APISs with the JavaScript frontend.
  • Plugins – You can develop plugins that can add additional functionality to your applications or use plugins that have already been built by the Grails community.

Grails Advantages

Here are a few of the advantages that developers experience when using Grails.

  • Grails doesn’t require XML Configuration
  • Fast Development – Grails provides a web server allowing you to begin your development immediately. You don’t have to build the web development units.
  • Use of mixins – Prevents developers from having to extend their base classes or use interfaces.

It’s clear that Grails is excellent framework software that can meet a wide range of needs with its versatile functionality. Are you interested in different or additional framework hosting options?
