Building Grails applications with PostgreSQL

Brent Baxter and Ken Rimple

The talk starts with a basic overview of the Grails framework. We will cover the basic building blocks (domains, controllers, views, grails command line), and build a small application.

During the talk, we will configure Grails to connect to PostgreSQL, introduce strategies for mapping the Grails ORM (GORM) domain objects to familiar PostgreSQL features such as keys, indexes, data types, and other options. We will also discuss executing stored procedures from Grails.

At the end of the talk, the developer will come away with a good high-level overview of the grails platform, and how it can be used to develop applications based on a PostgreSQL database.
