This week we explore Grails Testing support.
We know, we wanted to discuss the Grails Testing Plugin but we had some
difficulties finding a lot of time and getting the latest version
installed. So we decided to discuss the outcome of the Groovy Awards
instead. Groovy Award Winners

This week's poll on the Grails Podcast asks about the new site. (don't forget you can get the source from github!)
Besides all the news, we also discuss Marc Palmer's excellent Feed Plugin
, which makes all your RSS/ATOM needs a piece of cake. It is also used for the podcast feed of this site (with iTunes specific metadata)...

and we'll be happy to connect you.
This weeks SoapBox topic is Security. We have tried out the jSecurity Plugin and the Authentication Plugin and both give you and idea what to expect from them. Both were easy to get started with, but hear it yourself.
In the SoapBox we discussed the JCaptcha Plugin, which is also used for the comments functionality of this Grails Podcast Blog.
In the SoapBox, we discussed the Runtime Logging plugin, a plugin both Glen and me loved right from the beginning as it helps to get the Graisl Logging configuration right.
