在Groovy1.1 beta-1中,最大的亮点是支持Java的Annotation,今后我们在Groovy中可以方便地使用Guice, Hibernate等利用Annotation简化开发的框架了。另外Groovy1.1 beta-1中也支持了Java的静态导入(static import)。


下面是Release Notes:

Grails 0.5 Release Notes

30 April 2007

The Grails development team has reached another milestone and is pleased to announce the release of version 0.5 of the Grails web-application development framework.

Grails is a dynamic web-application framework built in Java and Groovy, leveraging best of breed APIs from the J2EE sphere including Spring, Hibernate and SiteMesh. Grails brings to Java and Groovy developers the joys of convention-based rapid development while allowing them to leverage their existing knowledge and capitalize on the proven and performant APIs Java developers have been using for years.

Development has been intense since the release of 0.4.2 at the end of February, tackling over 190 issues in this period. This release has seen exciting contributions from new team members and users and significant functionality enhancements.

Thank you to all the team members, patch contributors and users. A lot of hard work has gone into this release - we hope you enjoy using this latest installment of the Grails adventure.

New Features

  • Custom URL Mappings
  • Command objects / form validation
  • List & Map support in GORM
  • Support for composition in domain class (Hibernate "components")
  • Base64 codec
  • Dependency resolution with Ivy
  • Project metadata and versioning support, smarter scripts and upgrade processes
  • Script event hooks
  • Automatic addition of log objects to all artefacts
  • New Artefact API available to Plugins


  • Major improvements to artefact reloading
  • Improved relationship management methods in GORM
  • Cascading validation
  • Retrieving multiple objects with Book.getAll(1,2,3)
  • Using named HQL parameters in find() methods
  • Clean up of some legacy constraints issues
  • Performance improvements (40-50% faster)
  • Taglib optimisations
  • Improvements to scaffolding (sortable columns, pagination of large resultsets, etc.)
  • I18N improvements
  • Overhauled GSP view loading
  • Even greater test coverage of the core Grails code
  • Many many bug fixes
