The state of the art in Spring and Grails developer tooling
Making With Eclipse · Standard (25 mins)
Wednesday, 13:30, 25 minutes | Winchester
The Spring Framework and the associated Spring portfolio projects have emerged as the de-facto standard for enterprise Java development. The popular Grails Framework builds on top of Spring and the Groovy programming language to deliver increased productivity for web application development.
This session will introduce available developer tools supporting Spring and Grails and will highlight how those integrate with existing Eclipse technologies such as JDT, ADJT, Mylyn, WTP and Groovy-Eclipse. Additionally we show how those open-source tools can easily be extended to provide tool support for your Spring and Grails Framework extensions.
Be sure to not miss this talk if you want to get even more productive with Spring, Groovy and Grails.
