Aus den Rezensionen:
"… der Leiter dieses Open-Source-Projektes bringt bereits das erste Buch heraus. … In einem der ersten Kapitel geht er auch auf die wesentlichen Features der dynamischen Sprache Groovy ein, sodass man das Buch notfalls auch ohne großes Groovy-Vorwissen lesen kann. … sehr gut und aktuell … Viele kleine, wissenswerte Details über dieses Framework wurden passend hervorgehoben … Das Buch ist weiterhin gut zu lesen … ein Muss für jeden, der sich mit der agilen Webentwicklung mit dem Grails Framework beschäftigt."
(Sven Haiges, in: Javamagazin, 2007, Issue 3, S. 14)

Grails combines the power of Java, Groovy, Spring, HIBERNATE and more under the covers and brings out a true framework that increases your productivity to great levels.
This book clearly explains the concepts. Though some of the material and examples are little old compared to the latest Grails release, it is worth reading this book to understand the concepts. It will change the way you think and build Java applications.
A must read by every Java professional.
Save your money and go to grails.org and browse the documentation there, and in the meantime we'll all be waiting for some more in depth Grails books to come out like the one on GORM.
Having given this book a low rating, it's clearly going to be a great work once the second edition is published (hopefully shortly after the grails 1.0 release). Generally the text was well written, and very informative, and I'll be buying the second edition when it does come out! As a previous poster noted, how Graeme finds the time to do all that he does is amazing.
As to grails, I think it's got real potential, coupled with AJAX and grails should be a killer app - sorry framework.
It shows not only how fast and easy Web Application development can be on the Java Platform what you may expect as this is the book description but it also shows that Grails perfectly combines quality and productivity. High quality applications need to be easily automated testable. Authors presenting new technologies often forget this point but not Graeme who shows through the whole book how to take care to the quality of your application and even dedicates a special chapter to testing.
It's a truly great framework, and this is a truly great book that describes everything you need to get started with it and more.
