(Quick Reference)



Starts an instance of the Groovy terminal shell with an initialized Grails runtime.


grails shell



grails <<environment>>* shell

Starts the Grails shell, which is an extended version of the regular Groovy shell. Within the binding of the shell there are a couple of useful variables:

  • ctx - The Spring ApplicationContext instance

  • grailsApplication - The GrailsApplication instance

These are useful as they allow access to the conventions within Grails and Spring beans.

Example Shell:

Groovy Shell (1.8.0, JVM: 1.6.0_26)
Type 'help' or '\h' for help.
