Busy, working again

I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front for a while, since I've been kept busy working again - hoorah!

I'm using some pretty cool technologies such as Grails and Gigaspaces. Groovy development reminds me a lot of my Perl programming days - loose typing, brackets can be optional for method calls, the last line of a method can implicitly act as the return value, and some built-in regular expression handling.

IDE support for Grails 1.1 is quite poor, but during tonight's London Spring User Group presentation on developing plugins for Grails I came to the realisation that is hardly surprising, as I reckon the Grails plugin system is basically there to do the same job as IDEs have been doing - in terms of creating artefacts based on templates at least.
