Case Study - Grails in the Real World

Nov 5, 2013 · Brentwood, United States of America

Come see Greg Turnquist present the talk he have at this year's record attending SpringOne 2GX conference.

We all know how to code various patterns of behavior. But when your app needs to be used in the Real World(tm), there are certain things that are key.

In this talk, we'll walk through a production-grade Grails application that includes the following characteristics:

• Email-driven user registration combined with "forgot my password" and "update my email" techniques, all using Spring Mail

• Plugging in Spring Security to easily protect pages and only show appropriate links

• Coding specialized REST endpoints to serve authorized files to the client through this app

• Caching these files in Mongo's GridFS

• Polishing the look & feel using Twitter Boostrap and jQuery

• UI tactics to protect users from themselves (and reduce calls to your support center!)


Greg is a member of the Spring team at Pivotal, a spin off of VMware and EMC. He launched the Nashville JUG in 2010. He has spoken at several SpringOne conferences and made major contributions to Spring Boot. He has been a Spring fan for years. @gregturn
