Hello from the Wine Country! I'm currently in Sonoma north of San Francisco and will be heading to JavaOne in a couple of days! In the meantime the huge news is that we are getting more major players behind Grails. Every major open source project needs backing from the big players in the industry and Oracle have made a commitment (Thanks tug!) to get behind Grails which is fantastic news.
Its not quite clear at this point what that commitment will entail (I will be holding conversations at JavaOne), but the fact that such a huge organisation is backing Grails is a clear sign that Grails is making an impact and has the potential to succeed in the enterprise market.
In the meantime interest continues to gather pace with more committers and more interest so if you're coming to JavaOne remember to sign-up for the 2 sessions on Grails and see you there!
