In today's times, when getting an application out before your competitor does is the need of the hour, rapid
application development is a crucial
element in building web apps. This is where Grails hits the sweet spot.
In this session, we will be working to build a production ready web app in about 30 minutes where we'll see
how easy and quickly Grails allows us
convert an idea into a running application. We will be using it's built in power of auto generated CRUD,
large plugin repository, REST support,
convention over configuration approach,auto reloading features among others to speed up our development
experience all the while leveraging
battle tested and proven Java frameworks like Spring and Hibernate.

The traditional approach of Software Architecture was based on dedicated installations for a customer and the
components of software were
packaged as single unit. When the load on a particular component increased, the complete packaged unit
needed to be scaled-up. This leads to
wastage of resources.
In SaaS, and especially over the cloud, it is very important that we utilize the resources optimally. We must
ensure that Architecture of the
software is such that we are not just able to scale at component/service level, but the resources allocated
to a component/service are consumed
optimally. In the discussion, we will talk about how to leverage AKKA with Grails to achieve the desired
