What's the necessary backgroud to develop an application using Griffon ? Grails ? Something else ? And do you also need to learn to use several tools (like code generation tools) ?

Mostly Java and Swing. Knowing Grails helps you pick up the build workflow much faster but it is not a requirement.
Griffon is inspired by Grails. It follows Grails' build process closely but at runtime it's a different matter, as Griffon injects its own distinctiveness.

Cheers,
Andres

How fast the development can be, comparable to JSF? What makes Griffon to outclass similar frameworks in market?

Thanks.

You need to start a new thread. I have played around with Grails so hoping to touch up on Griffon this weekend!

Thanks.



Comparing to JSF is not a good comparison to start with: JSF = web; Griffon = desktop/RIA.
Griffon "outclasses" similar frameworks by:
- leveraging more than 5 years of Grails knowledge and development
- following recent approaches to better productivity: Convention over Configuration, DRY, automated tasks, testing supported out of the box
- using the Groovy language both as glue language and declarative 'markup' (no more XML pain).
- a growing plugin community

Cheers,
Andres
 
Not looking good. I think this might be the end. Wait! Is that a tiny ad?
