Triangle Java Users Group Presents:

Real World Groovy on Grails

presented by Phillip Rhodes

Monday, August 15, 2011
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

1801 Varsity Drive
Raleigh, North Carolina


Real World Groovy on Grails: Moving Past Toy Examples. In this talk, we'll explore lessons learned from using Groovy on Grails to build several large(ish) real world projects that are part of the ScrewPile suite. Moving beyond trivial Grails intros, we'll explore how to build Grails apps that: send and receive JMS messages, publish and consume RSS feeds, use scheduled jobs, integrate text search using Lucene, and parse content with Tika. We'll also explore issues related to project structure and configuration, that are needed for building real world apps. This talk will feature NO slides, just actual code and demonstrations!
