Introduction to REST Services with Grails

Introduction to REST Services with Grails

The Grails® framework offers many features specifically related to simplifying the task of publishing REST APIs. The 6-hour course prepares developers to maximize their productivity when building single-page applications (SPAs) using frameworks like AngularJS and React that require REST backends or microservice architectures that rely on REST APIs. 


This course provides a thorough understanding of the following topics through lectures, real-world examples, and hands-on practice:

  • The Grails framework's support for building REST APIs
  • Publishing APIs
  • Versioning APIs
  • Customizing response content
  • Grails and REST security
  • Interacting with a database from a REST API


To get the most out of this course, students should at least be familiar with the Grails framework and have a basic understanding of REST at a high-level. No particular expertise with Apache Groovy, the Grails framework, or REST is required.


The following topics are covered in this course:

  • Quick Introduction to REST
  • GORM and REST
  • Grails views
    • JSON views
    • Markup views
