hi all

searching for a framework with more flexibilty and agility in developing webapps running on the jvm as pure java based frameworks like seam / spring ect., i tried out some grails und have to commit that the first impression are not too bad and that the framework could make the requirements off the webapp for which i think about choosing grails - some frontend webapp in the financial surroundings with great aspect of felxibilty and agility, ajax based stuff etc.

so, here in germany grails does not seem to have such a great reputation and that is the point which makes me a bit doubting about using grails.
same thing with jruby, which i already used successfully in a java projekt and happy to solve problems in shortee time and lesser code.

thank you for your adivce and opinion

bye

niko,

I'm not real sure what you are asking. Did you have a specific question?

dear gregg,

i think it's not too hard to extract the question out of the "context".

but i try again in some clearer words:

if you have some experience with some script languages using the jvm and in this case especially with grails / groovy would you
adivce me to use it or not and what is your opinion about the future of grails.

thank you!

friendly regards

Why force folks to extract questions out of context? Why not just ask the question? Anyway, as to your question...

I've been using Grails professionally for a little over a year and unprofessionally for about 3 years. In my opinion, Grails and Groovy are excellent skills to have in your arsenal. But they are by no means the only ones you should have. Grails' future is very bright. You should go and google job trends related to Groovy and Grails to get a better perspective.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
