Grails is a fully integrated, modern Java web development stack. In a single zip file, it includes a web server (Jetty), a database (HSQLDB), a build system (GANT, a Groovy/Ant hybrid), a logging framework (Log4J), and a unit testing framework (JUnit). It also includes mainstream libraries like Spring for dependency injection, Hibernate for Object/Relational mapping, Quartz for scheduling, and SiteMesh for page layout. For Ajax, Grails allows you to choose between three major included technology stacks: Prototype/script.aculo.us, the Yahoo UI library, and Dojo. Coupling the power of these mainstream libraries with the ease-of-use that Groovy offers, you have an unprecedented collection of technologies that will have you up and running in record time.
Atom embodies a modern RESTful approach to web services. The fact that Google has deprecated its SOAP-based web services and is actively championing Atom via its GData initiative is just one example of the sea change that is occurring in the SOA space. Come see real world examples of this technology in action.
