ZKGrails adds and enhances its RIA development capabilities and seamlessly integrates it with Grails' infrastructure.
London, UK (PRWEB) October 27, 2011
ZKGrails1.0.6 has been officially released supporting an upgrade to SpringSource’s Grails 1.2+ versions and ZK5.0.9. The ZK plug-in for Grails has been well tested against wide-range versions of Grails, including 1.2.5 and 1.3.4 to 1.3.7. These configurations have been tested thoroughly along with JDK 1.5 and JDK 1.6.
ZKGrails is a plug-in for the full-stack Web development framework, Grails. Basically, it adds the ZK functionality atop the Grails stack in which its infrastructure is built based on the concept of convention-over-configuration and the DRY principle. ZK adds and enhances Grails’ RIA development capabilities and seamlessly integrates the two to feature direct AJAX, coding by convention and also able to apply Grails features with ZK as views. With ZKGrails, users are able to gracefully get their first data-driven, say Spring + Hibernate, ZK application running with just a few commands.
ZK, with its ground breaking Server+client Fusion architecture, provides extreme productivity and security of event-driven server architecture that developers value, while enabling fine grained control at the client-side. This unique feature plays an important role in simplifying the programming model of Grails’ web layer. Users are now able to just simply create a domain class, which is a Hibernate object, a service (a Spring Bean) to control transactions and a composer (also a Spring Bean) to control views. Wire them together, and it’s done.
Currently, ZKGrails is recognized as one of the leading choices when developers in the Grails community are looking for an RIA solution and for developers of the ZK community who are looking for a faster way to develop Spring and Hibernate applications.
