Upgrading to Grails 1.1

I spent about a day’s worth of work upgrading PatriotRoom.com from Grails 1.0.4 to Grails 1.1.

There were two areas that I had trouble with. The first was the plugins and was the easiest to overcome. I just had to reinstall them. The second however was logging which was completely revamped in Grails 1.1.

Personally I always had mixed results with logging settings in different environments. Turns out this site was the worst. However I like the new approach although it took the longest to get right. Some of it is because the documentation is a bit light in the area, especially with regards to custom appenders. I use two appenders, a daily rolling appender and an email appender for errors.

My file appender now looks like this:

appenders {
  console name:'stdout', layout:pattern(conversionPattern: '%d{ISO8601} [%p] -%X{user} %X{ip} # %X{sessionid} - %c{2} - %m%n')
appender new org.apache.log4j.DailyRollingFileAppender(name:'rollingfile', datePattern:"'.'yyyy-MM-dd",layout:pattern(conversionPattern: '%d{ISO8601} [%p] -%X{user} %X{ip} # %X{sessionid} - %c{2} - %m%n'), file:'../logs/patriotroom.log');

I still haven’t gotten the email appender working yet though.

Besides that, I also had to turn off the nice warning about the createLinkTo tag being deprecated. Guess I should fix those :)

The best part of the upgrade though is the –nojars build option. This is a real timesaver. My war file went from 25mb down to 6mb, which means my upload times went from just over 2 minutes down to 18 seconds. Now that is nice!
