Three Reasons for Using Groovy and Grails in Web Application Development

  1. 1. Three Reasons for Using Groovy and Grails in Web Application Development<br />Grails is an application development framework which has been inspired from Ruby on Rails (RoR). Groovy is a dynamic programming language for Java’s Virtual Machine (JVM) and Java Development Kit (JDK). Groovy is used as a primary programming language in Grails. One of the distinct features of Groovy is that it can be used and mixed with Java as per the needs of the development. Groovy is an open source language licensed under Apache 2.0 and Grails is built on proven Operational Support Systems (OSS) framework which includes: combination of Spring, Hibernate and Jetty. Groovy favors convention over configuration while Grail uses best practices from all languages like: <br />Convention over configuration <br />Don’t Repeat Yourself (DRY)<br />Agile<br />Ajax<br />Web services<br />Unit testing<br />Some of the reasons for using Groovy and Grails in Web Application Development include:<br />Swiftness and output: While using orthodox Java project, developers have to spend weeks creating the initial code for the infrastructure. But with the help of Groovy and Grails, the same task can be completed in couple of hours. This enhances the productivity of the developers and they can concentrate on improving the overall quality of the project.<br />Utilization of Java platform: Java offers tremendous scope for developers in creating ground-breaking web applications. Groovy and Grails can easily be integrated with Java applications. Grails offers industrious web application framework which reduces the steps in Java Development Framework. It is very easy for the developers to utilize Java library in an easier and faster way with Groovy. The use of Groovy and Grails reduces the development cycle phases and saves precious time. <br />Do Not Repeat Yourself (DRY) principle: With the help of Grail’s DRY principle, developers can easily accommodate changes in the codes. Since, the codes are not repeated developers can concentrate on improving the quality of the project. Grail also assists developers in easily documenting the codes and can take active participation with their peers through vibrant Grails community. This enables them in getting quick resolution to the problems and helps the novice Grails developers.<br />Nowadays, it has become a trend in the information technology industry to use agile development process. But it is extremely difficult for developers to take advantage of the Java framework using traditional Java methods. Hence, it is important for developers to use Groovy and Grails to exploit the benefits of Java in developing web applications.
