Hello ... I wanted to know if we can use Grails in combination with other frameworks like ajax libraries or a custom home grown framework based on JSF, Spring etc?

Hi Praful,

There are different ways to integrate with other frameworks and tools such as those you mentioned. The easiest way is through a plugin. Grails plugins are easy to install and use and there are currently plugins for integrating with Wicket, GWT, Struts 1, Flex and most of the popular Ajax frameworks. Check the Plugin Portal for even more:

More fine grained integration can also be done, but would best be discussed on a case by case basis.

Hope that helps,

Yes this is one point where the Groovy community is working on :- using Groovy in conjunction with other web frameworks. Expect more here in the future...
