What is Grails web development?

Grails, one of the most powerful rapid application development (RAD) frameworks, brings agility and robustness with a shorter lead time for application development. This helps to rush MVP quickly out in the market and lessen market risk.

OnGraph is a global leader in Grails development and has helped many start-ups build mission-critical applications on Grails. Using Grails development capabilities, we have developed SaaS products, video portals, live-streaming applications, analytics engines, e-commerce sites & marketplaces.

Why choose Grails for app development?

Grails outstands other web application frameworks and that’s the reason it is used by the world’s leading companies to develop their software products.

Based on Groovy language

Groovy code is much more concise, expressive and DRY than Java code, which means there are fewer lines of code, which translates to much higher developer productivity and less code to maintain.

Responsive and supportive community

Grails is not only about technology, it has a very responsive and supporting community.

There is hardly any question that doesn’t get answered on the mailing list.


GORM provides a very easy-to-use and flexible layer over Hibernate and few other non-relational Data Sources.

This makes it extremely easy to talk to any GORM supported Data Source.

Easy to get started

It is very easy for a Java developer to get started with using Grails, and start experiencing the joy of web application development with Groovy and Grails.

Domain Centric approach

Grails puts domain classes at the centre of the application, which in our opinion is a very good thing.

Standard Project template

Grails projects are easier to maintain because of the naming conventions and standard project structure.

Conventions and standards make it very easy for new developers to quickly get familiar with the code and get started.


Scaffolding utilities provided by Grails is a great advantage when building prototypes to validate the idea, or to build Admin interfaces.

Testing support

Grails promotes testing and provides utilities to make testing easier — from low-level unit tests to high-level functional tests.
