Grails QuickCast #5: Retrieving Runtime Config Values In Grails 3

Retrieving Runtime Config Values In Grails 3

In the fifth Grails QuickCast, Grails co-founder, Jeff Scott Brown, highlights some of the great features of the Grails framework.  In less than 18 minutes, Jeff describes several techniques for retrieving configuration values at runtime, and discusses the pros and cons of these different techniques. For this Quickcast, you’ll need no more than a basic understanding of Grails. The Grails Quickcast series is brought to you from OCI and DZone.  

Grails leverages the “Convention Over Configuration” design paradigm, which functions to decrease the number of decisions that a developer using the framework is required to make without losing flexibility. This is one of the main reasons why Grails significantly increases developer productivity!

While Grails applications often involve considerably less configuration than similar applications built with other frameworks, some configuration may still be necessary. In this short video, Jeff shares a number of mechanisms that make it easy for Grails developers to define configuration values, and to gain access to those configuration values at runtime.
