RESTful Groovy

A session at GR8Conf US 2013

Tuesday 23rd July, 2013

3:00pm to 4:00pm (CST)

We will discuss three different frameworks for writing RESTful web services in groovy. We'll cover Grails, Dropwizard and Ratpack and talk about the pros and cons of each one. We'll examine each one in terms of code readability, maintainability, deployment, metrics collection, scalability and testability.

Dropwizard is a micro framework developed by Yammer for building production ready JSON web services quickly. It is based on proven Java libraries like jetty, jersey and jackson and is easy to use in groovy. Ratpack is a groovy framework similar to ruby's Sinatra. It is useful for building very small applications quickly.
