I am a newbie to grails framework and groovy.
I have an experience of making web applications with struts, spring and hibernate.
Can grails be used as a complete replacement for these frameworks for building enterprise applications, web services, desktop applications.
I want to learn groovy and grails starting with their basics and am planning to read this book as soon it is available.
Can the book be taken a start guide for grails or you recommend some other resource before picking up your book.

Looking at few other threads bearing the similar question, the answer is 'YES'! You can take it up as a starting guide!

Hi Shwetha,

Yes, this book is intended to help you get started quickly. I don't think there is anything else you would need before getting started. Once you get hooked on Grails, you can check out the appendix at the end of the book for a bunch of resources to help you learn more and get more involved.

Have fun!
