Last month, I presented a talk at the Groovy Users of Minnesota (GUM) meeting on integrating Grails applications into enterprise environments by utilizing Spring Batch for non-request based actions. This was a talk I was originally to present at GR8Conf 2013 but was unable to attend at the last minute.
The turnout at GUM was fantastic. Everyone was very attentive and there were a lot of good questions both before and after the presentation. It really showed how many people were encountering some of the same scenarios when trying to take their Grails applications beyond the web request driven experience.
If you either don’t live in Minneapolis, or just missed the presentation, I’ve posted the slides @ speakerdeck.
I’ve also posted a sample project on github for reference.
