What is Grails

Grails is a Java based web application framework. It is written in Groovy and follows the principles of the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern. It is built on top of the Spring Framework and leverages the power of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM).

Grails provides a number of features and conventions. They make it easy to develop web applications quickly and efficiently:

  • a powerful Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) system
  • a convenient command-line interface
