  • AST Transformation (1/2) • Groovy 1.6 introduced AST Transformations – AST: Abstract Syntax Tree • Ability to change what’s being compiled by the Groovy compiler... at compile time –No runtime impact! – Change the semantics of your programs! Even hijack the Groovy syntax! – Implementing recurring patterns in your code base – Remove boiler-plate code • Two kinds: global and local – triggered by annotationsCopyright 2011 SpringSource. Copying, publishing or distributing without express written permission is prohibited. 11
  • AST Transformations (2/2) • Transformations introduced in 1.6 – @Singleton – @Immutable, @Lazy, @Delegate – @Newify – @Category, @Mixin – @PackageScope – Swing’s @Bindable and @Vetoable – Grape’s own @GrabCopyright 2011 SpringSource. Copying, publishing or distributing without express written permission is prohibited. 12
  • @Immutable • To properly implement immutable classes – No mutations — state musn’t change – Private final fields – Defensive copying of mutable components – Proper equals() / hashCode() / toString() for comparisons or as keys in maps @Immutable

  • Simple plugin system (1/3)• Gaelyk features a simple plugin system for extending your apps and share commonalities• A plugin lets you – provide additional groovlets and templates – contribute new URL routes – add new categories – define variables in the binding – override existing binding variables – provide any static content – add new libraries – do any initialization – add before/after request hooksCopyright 2011 SpringSource.

  • Simple plugin system (2/3)• A plugin is actually just a zip file! – Basically, just a Gaelyk application, minus... •the Groovy / Gaelyk / GAE JARs •the web.xml and appengine-web.xml descriptors – But with a /WEB-INF/plugins/myplugin.groovy descriptor• A plugin must be referenced in /WEB-INF/ plugins.groovy with – install myplugin •shortcut to /WEB-INF/plugins/myplugin.groovyCopyright 2011 SpringSource.

  • Summary• Easy access to a cloud solution –Deploying Java apps, as easily as you would with PHP• Familiar to Java folks –Your good old Servlet centric webapps style• Pretty cheap –You need a high-trafficed website to reach the quotas• Gaelyk provides a simplified approach to creating Servlet centric webapps in a productive manner –Leveraging Groovy’s servlet / template support and dynamic capabilitiesCopyright 2011 SpringSource. Copying, publishing or distributing without express written permission is prohibited. 113
  • What’s coming next?• Expect more sugar around the Datastore – An SQL-like query DSL – Easier relationship management (builder?)• Perhaps pre-compiled groovlets and templates – Less needed since SDK 1.4 • (reserve 3 hot instances, warmup requests)• Testing facilities specific to Gaelyk –testing utility class, Spock-specific ones...• Anything that’ll come up in newer GAE SDK versionsCopyright 2011 SpringSource.
