I'm currently working on a project that has started, at least conceptually, in Java. It's an app for managing some patient records and to give some kind of statistical information to healthcare professionals. Entity classes, persistence layers, DAO pattern, mobile interface, native interface ... and so on ...
I thought Spring might be the way. Ok next step "Springify" my app.
But wait... i don't know how to do it !
No problem grabbed some books watched some lectures browsed some tutorials and off we go !
At some point i started wondering ... what if there is a way to prototype this app in an elegant and less verbose way ? That would be great, i could take a more try-and-buy approach. If something doesn't make sense go back and follow another path.
Then i met Grails, it's Groovy, it's Java(ish), i can use Spring stuff, there is also Hibernate. Oh well it was love at first sight (i can assure you that we kept on dating and i'm still quite happy) !
