Griffon, an agile framework based on the Groovy language, makes user interface development dramatically faster and easier. In many respects, Griffon is for desktop development what Grails is for web development.
"Griffon in Action" is a comprehensive tutorial written for Java developers who want a more productive approach to UI development. In this book, readers will immediately dive into Griffon. After a Griffon orientation and a quick Groovy tutorial, they''ll start building examples that explore Griffon''s high productivity approach to Swing development. The book covers declarative view development, like the one provided by JavaFX Script, as well as the structure, architecture and life cycle of Java application development.
From the Publisher:
Griffon in Action is a comprehensive tutorial written for Java developers who want a more productive approach to UI development. After a quick Groovy tutorial, you'll immediately dive into Griffon and start building examples that explore its high productivity approach to Swing development.About the Technology
You can think of Griffon as Grails for the desktop. It is a Groovy-driven UI framework for the JVM that wraps and radically simplifies Swing. Its declarative style and approachable abstractions are instantly familiar to developers using Grails or JavaFX.About the Book
Griffon in Action gets you going quickly. Griffon's convention-over-configuration approach requires minimal code to get an app off the ground, so you can start seeing results immediately. You'll learn how SwingBuilder and other Griffon "builders" provide a coherent DSL-driven development experience. Along the way, you'll explore best practices for structure, architecture, and lifecycle of a Java desktop application.
Written for Java developers?no experience with Groovy, Grails, or Swing is required.
