    Grails vs rails???

    Hello all,

    I am a competent PHP and JavaScript developer, but I have decided to jump into the big pool and get into GRAILS (partially because my new company uses it for their backend). I have been at it for a couple of weeks now and I am really overwhelmed: I usually don't know what is going on and there is no way in hell I could write my own app.

    So: what is a good starting place for someone completely new to GRAILS (and Groovy and rails and Java...).

    Thank you for your help!

    Well I know lynda.com has video lessons for Ruby on Rails. Might be a place to start, but their service will run $37 a month if you want to be able to download their exercise files.

    I wonder how east Grails let's you behave the same way that Rails does. My inner database geek cringes a bit at the thought of giving up control of my db column definitions. I think this is mainly because I've yet to see a model-centric way that worked the way I my mind thought. Granted I guess I still think like a db admin. Maybe I'm too old school...
