This Week in Grails (2013-01)

The big news of this week is that there is finally a book available that covers Grails 2, Jeff and Graeme’s The Definitive Guide to Grails 2. There’s even photographic proof that it’s shipping :)

If you’re considering submitting talk proposals to either or both of GR8Conf Europe and GR8Conf US be sure to do so soon; the deadline is February 15. Submit for the US conference here and the EU conference here, and if you want to submit for both you can do that from either site.

I released two new plugins this week. The first was the database-migration-jaxb plugin which was going to be part of the database-migration plugin but it requires Java 7 or higher (more specifically JAXB 2.2 or higher) so I released it as an addon instead. It adds a new approach to creating database migrations – writing them programmatically using JAXB-generated classes. I wrote about this and the big new 1.3 release of the database-migration plugin in this blog post.

The other new plugin is spring-security-shiro which adds the ability to use Shiro’s easy and powerful ACLs and permissions alongside Spring Security and the spring-security-core plugin. See this blog post for more information.
