Build a complete Grails application in this full-day workshop. Start from scratch designing the domain, add controllers and services, improve the user interface with Ajax calls, write unit and integration tests, and use plugins add functionality.
While building the application, we'll also talk about issues relating to Hibernate sessions and GORM, and how the Grails architecture differs from other standard approaches. A survey of some of the more popular plugins will be included, and we'll add as many as time allows.
Grails comes with extensive testing support, ranging from unit to integration to functional tests. This session will demonstrate the range of options available both natively and through testing plugins.
Topics will include testing constraints, the mock libraries for testing controllers, generating test data, the available testing annotations, and more.
