Summary

Griffon in Actionis 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 Actiongets 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.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.

What's Inside
  • Griffon from the ground up
  • Full compatibility with Griffon 1.0
  • Using SwingBuilder and the other "builders"
  • Practical, real-world examples
  • Just enough Groovy
