As the site says â€˜the search is overâ€™â€¦
Letâ€™s see, take a ruby on rails mvc approach, with good generation, Hibernate ORM baked in, Spring dependency injection baked in, Testing baked inâ€¦ wrapped all up in a domain driven design context with domain classes, services, tag library html â€˜helpersâ€™ and then go command line or pick your IDE of choice (ie. I got mine up and running in minutes with NetBeans)â€¦ brilliantâ€¦ run-app!
From my normal .NET development experience, Grails comes along and just rolls over anything Iâ€™ve seen out of Microsoft. No hunting around for the 10 assemblies to handle the open source projects â€“ Grails is all ready to go with best of breed choices. This is, frankly, where I would have thought IronRuby/IronPython would be with asp.net mvc by now.
Letâ€™s just say it again, Grails definitely rocks :)
