Grails is a framework used to build web applications with the Groovy programming language. The core framework is very extensible and there are numerous plugins available that provide easy integration of add-on features.

Getting Started

You need a Java Development Kit (JDK) installed, but it is not necessary to install Groovy because it's bundled with the Grails distribution. You also need a Maven distribution with version > 2.0.9 (plugins were not tested with versions anterior to this). Where grailsVersion is your grails distribution version, in your terminal/console :

mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=org.grails -DarchetypeArtifactId=grails-maven-archetype -DarchetypeVersion=${grailsVersion} -DgroupId=example -DartifactId=my-app -DarchetypeRepository=
mvn initialize

For further usage refer to the Grails documentation on maven :

If you want to use a snapshot version of grails-maven-plugin, then you must uncomment the snapshot repositories inside of the generated pom.xml.
