The core plugin adds methods and beans that other plugins rely upon


This plugin configures Grails to use Spring MVC at its core to deal with web requests. The plugin configures the GrailsDispatcherServlet and necessary Spring beans (see below) for controllers, tag libraries and Groovy Server Pages (GSP)

Configured Spring Beans:

  • classLoader - A bean that refers to the GroovyClassLoader used to load this GrailsApplication
  • classEditor - A PropertyEditor that populates classes with String data
  • customEditors - An instance of CustomEditorConfigurer, that uses allows the classEditor bean to be used as a PropertyEditor
