Had an odd issue today trying to deploy my first grails 2.0 app to a production server. When deploying to a Sun Java System Web Server (v7.0), all access to the application root requires http auth. Access to a specific resource works fine.
Applications built with grails 1.3.7 work fine on the same server. My first thought was something in web.xml but I don't see anything that would cause it, although there obviously are some differences between the web.xml for 1.3.7 and that of 2.0.
FYI, I did not do a grails upgrade on a 1.3.7 app, but rather made a new 2.0 app and copied the various class files over to the new app.
