My Review of Programming Grails

Originally submitted at O’Reilly

Best Practices for Experienced Grails Developers

Excellent look under the hood of Grails

5out of 5

Pros: Accurate, Helpful examples, Easy to understand

Best Uses: Intermediate, Expert

Describe Yourself: Developer, Educator

Yes, this “early access” edition is very early, but the content so far is fantastic. The Hibernate chapter is the best discussion of how Grails handles Hibernate anywhere, and Burt clearly discusses how and when to use the second-level cache.

If the book consisted of that chapter alone it would be worth the price, but the other available chapters are also great. I have every reason to believe this will be an outstanding book for experienced Grails developers.
