To frame this out, I am working with Grails and building on top of the implementation discussed in the screencast, Jump Into Grails 2.0. My experience with Groovy is limited, but I have a good background in Java which I am hoping to leverage in learning/understanding Groovy. The screencast takes an approach of building a basic application in Grails encompassing the following,
- Setting up application configuration and plugins
- Building basic model, view and controller implementations of
- User Role mapping
- Discuss Unit testing - in my opinion very handy and largely automated
- Building a new model, view and controller of a Book.
