Introduction to Grails Security

In this 2-day, hands-on workshop, you'll learn to build robust security functionality into your Grails® apps and practice configuring and using such plugins as Spring Security Core, LDAP, REST, ACL, and UI.


This workshop provides an overview of the Grails security landscape. Through lectures, real-world examples, and hands-on lab exercises, you'll gain a thorough understanding of the Grails security through an in-depth demonstration of the security capabilities of key Grails plugins.


Prior experience with the Grails framework is a plus, but no particular expertise with Apache Groovy or the Grails framework is required.
