I've been toying around with Grails as often as I have spare time. After the initial wow factor of getting a project created and scaffolding I'm having a hard time finding the benefits. Scaffolding is cool but not the desired end result. From what I understand you pretty much put scaffolding to the back burner and while you don't manually create the files, you still have to populate the guts of the controllers and views.

That brings me to GORM. I can see the benefit of something like this. And I understand that there is work on extracting GORM into a stand alone project for use outside of Grails?

I was wondering if someone can provide someone of an ubiased opinion on the grooviness of grails. Possible folks that still enjoy other frameworks as well but can see the benefits of Grails under certain conditions?
