I recommend this book to all who work with the great Grails Framework to build simple- or complex Web Applications.
Only drawback is, that this book covers up to Grails 2.3.x. But thats a minor issue, since Grails 2.4.x only has minor changes for most of the Framworks usage.

A great book: make sure you read it before starting to work with Grails. You will thank yourself for that. 10. Oktober 2014
Von Francesco Bianchi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Grails in Action is definitely a book I wish I had read before starting to work on Grails.

Well written, easy and funny to read, it makes the process of learning Grails a pleasant journey. Theory is perfectly balanced with examples of code. When you finish the book you get the feeling that you really learned something useful that it will be a pleasure to use in your daily work.

I read this book after having worked with Grails for 1 year I cannot tell if it's a good reading for newbies but it seemed to me all the concepts were explained in a very simple way, easily accessible also by programmers with little knowledge of programming in general. At the same time I found the book to be a good source of good insights that made me appreciate more and understand more deeply features of the framework that I was already using. Occasionally I've also found tricks that I think I will use in my daily work with Grails.

One thing that I particularly appreciated about the book was the focus it puts on continuously testing the code. This is exactly the way applications should be developed with Grails and the author made it evident how easy it is to accomplish a task often seen as too painful and time-consuming.

The chapters I appreciated the most were the ones related to the presentation layers. A plus for me (but this is subjective) is that the author decided to use AngularJS as a web development framework as a modern alternative to put the code in GSPs. The code was simple for me because I have used AngularJS in conjunction with Grails (and enjoyed the process) previously but I think that here too the author was able to find a very good balance in the information given, something particularly difficult when you need to introduce a new technology to show features of another one you are currently focusing on.

Recently I have also had the chance to read excerpts of the previous version of the book and I think this new version greatly improves the previous one exploring new features of the framework and focusing more on testing the code. So, if you have a copy of the older one, you should still consider to buy this update.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

A comprehensive if not complete list of tutorials and recipes to concur Grails 18. August 2014
Von A. Zubarev - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
So yes, Grails has been inspired by Rails, but even without me knowing much Rails it is evident that Grails is a super feature reach, extensible web framework that utilizes verified, well known components as Spring, Hibernate/GORM, Quartz, Active MQ and more which makes it stands out like on the shoulders of a giant. A very flexible, convention over configuration (makes a lot of heavy-lifting behind the scenes) system.
The book itself is another shiny star: the author and publisher did a very good work in releasing a very thorough material. It is written the way I like it - by submerging a reader into deep waters - by jumping right into creating a working web application!
Besides, I read not long time ago on another RAD tool - Flask. I was therefore able to look at Grails from the retrospective of a user of another web framework: what stood out is the absence of configs in Grails, or the extensive need to tackle them, and no numerous pip installs as in Flask. The impression I am under after reading this book, Grails is a super productive framework. And indeed, it works well with any databases (RDBMS' and NoSQL, even Graph databases) and seamlessly integrates with Java libraries.
The book aims high, too - to make the reader not less than a Grails productive developer.
Kudos to Peter and Glen! Who are advocates of Grails/Groovy, and successfully sell the Framework. Yet the authors have a unique talent of explaining things in simple words, e.g. closures, dynamic programming were explained elegantly.
More on Grails and what is done well in the book:

Ajax support is dynamically built-in, nice!
Grails has a very strong, mature IoC implementation (I am impressed)
Operating in the Cloud is well enough covered (a big bonus nowadays)
The book covers the text search options using Searchable that may become Elasticsearch;
Also covers RESTful services and how to expose API in your app to make it consumable from outside
The book makes a quick stop (I advocate there should had been more coverage) on Single Page Apps with Angular.js
There is a special emphasis done on protecting your application from malicious use or such common exploitations as SQL Injection;
Performance tuning, legacy integration, database transactions, custom build processes, and even how to develop and publish your own plugins

I liked chapter 4 on building a UI, Ch 13 on RESTFUL services, and the Scheduling in Part 15 then 16 on NoSQL the most.
If you ask me if I had any bad experience that would be the what I feel an excessive amount of time dedicated to testing code and various techniques to doing so, hey but it is really necessary.
Very good book for learning Grails 18. September 2014
Von Victor M. Perez - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a very good book for learning Grails fast. It's not perfect, but it's very good.
Right from the start, at the preface, the book surprised me for its fresh approach and the direct language. Everything is explained in a way that is easy to understand. It transmits passion, enthusiasm about Grails. Contragutulations to the authors, you made a great book!
It's much easier and entertaining to read this book than the online documentation, for example, at
As an experienced programmer, I reckon it might be worth it investing time in learning Groovy. Groovy looks like Java, but it's not Java, it's Groovy. I liked a lot the Spock test framework. It gave me some ideas for using in my Java day to day usage. Not to mention Spring integration... You really get useful things from this book.

I agree with some opinion here that the installation description could be more detailed, and add some troubleshooting, just in case you have some problems like I did.
My installation was based on latest (Aug'14) Grails version, v2.4.3 (the book is based on v2.3.7), and Java 1.8. I found I was better off typing the code myself from scratch than using the provided samples. For this you have to really keep track of the book because it's not always clear which file you need to modify, or where to create that other file...
Running the apps I got into some errors which Grails advice you how to solve. This was not that difficult, and it was probably due to my configuration, but i missed something about this in the book.
An excellent book to start with grails 17. September 2014
Von Gutwine - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I started reading the book with no idea of Groovy neither Grails, I have some background in java and web development.

The first part is an introduction to Grails framework, quickly built a web application so you can do a quick overview of the main components that comprise an application. Then an introduction to Groovy enough to understand the code in the book. Don't be afraid, if you know java its very straightforward to learn Groovy.

The second part explains one by one the components of the Grails framework.The authors not only explain the concepts clearly, they also give recommendations and best practices throughout the book.

The third part deals with the development of a twitter style sample application. It's a somewhat complex application that helps enough to fix what has been learned so far, if you build it step by step. This part also explains interesting things like security in Grails, using plugins and how to build a public API for your web app.

The fourth part explains advanced concepts such as performance tuning, noSQL database integration, and an interesting chapter on how to publish your application online.

In short, I found the book interesting and useful to start with Grails, in my opinion, you need to have knowledge of java or any other programming languaje, be familiar with html and javascript is useful in some chapters.

The best Grails Book for the Best Framework. 13. August 2014
Von kamal - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I have been the Grails developer for last 3 years. Grails have changed so much in the recent days. If you want to read a real Grails book, then this book for you.

This book unlike other book, is very neatly organised. The book start up with Groovy basics, which is helpful for people new to the groovy world. Then the book starts with creating a Twitter clone. The part 2 of the chapter cleanly explains the basic concept of grails like domain modelling, fast UI creation, data search etc. The good thing is that the book has sidebar , which gives tips and tricks.

Then the part 2 is where things gets interested. It explains how plugins can make your application more secure. Authors also provided chapters for REST Apis in grails. This new edition has an added chapter for Single page web application, which explains how rich UI can be built using Angular JS.

Then in part 3 goes much beyond and explains, the grails in more depth. Concepts like messaging,NoSql,Grails in the cloud(new in this edition)

Overall, a great book. The Twitter example is really easy to follow and the code is there in Github chapter wise, which makes our progress easy to follow!!

You will also encounter “ah-ha” moments, when author explains how “findBy” methods are really working under the covers.
