Spring, MVC and Groovy

If you'd ever find yourself choosing the whole Grails stack only because it is sooo much easier to setup a project by comparison to pure Spring MVC I strongly recommend you try out the new Spring MVC on Groovy Maven archetype. That sucker punches in Spring in an easily selectable version, Groovy (1.8.6) and the groovy-eclipse compiler (also 1.8.6), JUnit and Spock, JavaMelody for monitoring - basically all you need to create a web application using Groovy, some IoC container, an MVC framework and test all that in a reasonable fashion.

Give it a shoot. If there's something you'd like to add to it then by all means - drop a note on GitHub.

Have a nice day!
