(Quick Reference)



The servletContext object is an instance of the Servlet API’s ServletContext class.


class BookController {
    def doSomething() {
        def input
        try {
            input = servletContext.getResourceAsStream("/WEB-INF/myscript.groovy")
            def result = new GroovyShell().evaluate(input.text)
            render result
        finally {


The Servlet API’s ServletContext is useful for, amongst other things, storing global application attributes, reading local server resources and establishing information about the servlet container.

Grails adds additional methods to the standard Servlet API’s servletContext object. See link for details.
