I have Java backend project with REST implementation which is a warfile, I also have Grails as frontend, i can run theese two separeted projects on their own using tomcat, but how do i configure the grails part so that i can use the java backend RESTfull webbservice within it, do i have to make a war file from the java backend and import it to the grails frontend ? make a jarfile ? if so, how do i do that ? or are there any other way to to this to make it work.

All you'll need to do is have a way of making calls to the RESTful web services. The rest plugin should suffice.
