Flex on Grails – Rich Internet Applications With Rapid Application Development

Grails provides an application developer the productivity and programming paradigm of Rails while continuing to use the power of Java and J2EE where appropriate.

On the browser side, most clients use HTML and CSS, trying to provide a desktop feel: even using modern Javascript libraries it is a difficult task. Flash enables one to build rich UI, however the steep learning curves of Flex, problems with integrating flash components on traditional web page and the need for specialist designers to produce flash content is a strong deterrent.

Enter the Flex Grails plug-in. Flex on Grails lets you combine the processes and technologies of rapid application development to the creation of Rich Internet Applications (RIAs).

This session provides an introduction to Flex on Grails and benefits of Flex over an Ajax based web application. You will learn how to build / debug and run an application using Flex on Grails. The session is based on the experience gained while building an internal CRM application which took us days instead of weeks to develop!
