Hi Dave! I think your book is fantastic. I guess I don't have a question. I just really like the book.

Hello Dave,

I have been working with many web application frameworks (and with Grails as well), but in Grails I couldn't find the answer how to integrate my own Java libraries (that possibly use Hibernate and spring themselves) into Grails/Groovy project?

Also is there any possibility to separate presentation logic from business logic (just add some API calls in web layer to business)?

Thanks, for the answers and welcome!

Hi Dave,
in a plugin I'd like to extract constants (e.g. folder and file names) into a (groovy) class for reuse in install, uninstall and other scripts.
How can I use such a class in my gant scripts?

Thanks everybody! This should be a fun week.

There were some good questions in this welcome thread. I hope those will be reposted as new topics, but if not, I'll try to come back here and answer them.

Dave
