I’m currently trying to go through the book again using Grails-2.0.3. I’ve noticed that there are much more hurdles to overcome than 3 years earlier when I used Grails-1.1.2. Nevertheless, it seems to work.
I’ve reached chapter 7 now and I’m planning to continue my way through the complete book. I’ve put my findings on github. You can find it here on GitHub: https://github.com/uli-heller/grails-2.0-qsg .
Best regards, Uli.
