Introduction to Grails Security

In this 2-day, hands-on workshop, you'll learn to build robust security functionality into your Grails apps.

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 configuration and capabilities of Grails security plugins.


This workshop is designed for Grails developers who wish to enhance their coding skills with a solid background in Grails security.

Students will get an in-depth demonstration of the security capabilities of key Grails plugins and learn to configure and use such plugins as Spring Security Core, LDAP, REST, ACL, and UI.


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