Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Doug Warren on December 14, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book helps Java Swing developers exploit the Griffon framework for web or desktop applications. It thoroughly covers advanced topics, such as MVC design, multithreading, events, testing, packaging, and plugins that are necessary to be successful with these technologies. It also illustrates how Griffon offers similar front-end capabilities to those provided by Grails for back-end web applications, and how those could even be used together.

The book focuses primarily on various advanced features available with Griffon. The examples were quite useful for demonstrating the techniques for each specific technology challenge. Each chapter explores the various features, including covering tips and techniques for various options. They were presented in an evolutionary way, which the reader can create as they proceed through the book. There are Ant build scripts included with all the chapter examples.

I would definitely recommend it for those Java, Swing, or Griffon developers planning to exploit this technology. They might be lost without a guide that helps them know to leverage its capabilities, and this book should help them avoid running into trouble.
