Grails 3.2 and GORM 6.0 Released

September 28, 2016

As the proud Home to Grails, we are ecstatic to announce the GA release of Grails 3.2 and GORM 6.0!

GORM 6.0

GORM 6.0 is a further development toward making GORM a standalone technology to be used outside of Grails. It is now easier to bootstrap and use GORM in a range of different scenarios, from Grails to Spring Boot, to within a unit test.


RxGORM is the new API for GORM based on RxJava. With RxGORM you can write non-blocking, reactive data access code for supported implements.

Grails 3.2

Grails 3.2 bundles all of the goodness of GORM 6, plus a whole bunch of new features in the core framework.

STL G&G Meetup - October 5th

September 09, 2016

Join us and Jeff Scott Brown, co-founder of Grails, to discuss Domain Specific Languages (DSLs).

DSLs can be a simple yet powerful mechanism to simplify application development tasks.  Grails implements many DSLs for describing things like property constraints, custom ORM mapping, content negotiation, and others.  This session will review many of the DSLs supported by the framework, and will also drill into how to write your own custom DSLs in a Grails application.


Wednesday, October 5th, 2016
6:00pm - 7:30pm
Doors open at 6:00pm. Presentation and discussion will begin at 6:30pm.

Grails 3.2 RC1 Released!

September 01, 2016

The Pre-Release is here! The Grails team has released the Grails 3.2 RC1 with GORM 6.0, RxJava support, Spring Boot 1.4 support, AngularJS 1.0 Scaffolding, JSON Views 1.1, Updated Dependencies, and more!

Github has everything you need to get started. 

Dynamic frameworks like Rails, Django and TurboGears helped pave the way to a more modern way of thinking about web applications. Grails builds on these concepts and dramatically reduces the complexity of building web applications on the Java platform. What makes it different, however, is that it does so by building on already established Java technologies like Spring and Hibernate.

Grails is a full stack framework and attempts to solve as many pieces of the web development puzzle through the core technology and its associated plugins.

September 2016 SETT Article: Pronghorn IoT: A Declarative Java Approach to Programming Embedded Systems

September 01, 2016

If current trends continue, the number of IoT (Internet of Things) devices in circulation may triple to 38.5 billion by 2020, far outpacing the number of PCs. However, programming an IoT device still remains difficult. Often in-depth knowledge of both hardware specifications and difficult low-level concepts are required to get even the simplest of examples to work. With Pronghorn IoT, we provide an easy-to-use, declarative, and low garbage API that teaches the maker (even one with no applicable experience) how to create a working example in as little as 15 minutes. In doing so, we also provide a top-down approach to teaching students Java.
