We’ve been using Groovy for a number of years for infrastructure-level scripting, database tools, and Groovlets. Now we need to build a fully-featured web application,
and we want to leverage Groovy in doing so. In our case, there is little need for domain objects, as most of the operations will be service calls. We need to build web pages, control URL routing, and support Ajax, but I may not have to code a single domain
class that results in a CRUD or report page.
Has anyone ever done this?
·The domain is pre-existent and mostly read only.
·All operations will be performed by services, either to retrieve data (JSON) or to call a stored procedure or direct SQL updates.
·I need Ajax support, but that also needs to call a service method that handles a complex query for autocomplete.
·If I’m looking at the code for a web page (gsp, or the like), I need to be able to see readily what code is called when I click on something.
·Screen building will be somewhat dynamic, with “click on parent to see children, click on a child to see details” and so forth.
We are dealing with a large data warehouse for which we will provide views, materialized or otherwise, for all display and operations, you won’t be able to
update a domain object.
Is Grails the best way to do this? I know that there are many ways to do it, but I would be interested in the experiences of those who have encountered the
same sort of project.
