Griffon in Action

Griffon in Action

By Andres Almiray, Danno Ferrin, and James Shingler
Foreword by Dierk Koenig

Griffon in Action is a comprehensive tutorial written for Java developers who want a more productive approach to UI development. After a quick Groovy tutorial, you’ll immediately dive into Griffon and start building examples that explore its high productivity approach to Swing development. Source code can be found here.

 
 
 
 

The book discusses Griffon 1.x, which is largely compatible with Griffon 2.x in terms of behavior but some things have changed since, chiefly:

  • There is no longer a griffon command. Gradle or Maven are used instead.

  • Lazybones is required to create a project, instead of archetypes.

  • Plugins are regular JAR files.

  • Groovy is no longer the default language of choice.
