This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Not entirely sure what you are really asking but I'll take a shot at it. Stripes and Grails are two different frameworks so you can't really use the two together. Also, Stripes is not a full stack framework like Grails so the development process is a bit different in that with Stripes you get to pick all the other pieces you want to use rather than having the framework force you into particular technologies.
