New Gaelyk plugin: Easy Datastore Service Plugin — CRUD for Gaelyk
Vladimír Oraný has released a new plugin for Gaelyk — the Easy Datastore Service (EasyDS) Plugin, which “simplifies basic CRUD operation with entities and also provides some closure based valiation.” This is as far as I know the first attempt at adding such simplified, Grails-style CRUD to Gaelyk (and the plugin is in fact inspired by GORM). The source is up at GitHub, and there are code examples and explanations in the README.

Betamax: Groovy record/playback proxy for testing HTTP interactions
Betamax is a Groovy-based tool for recording and playing back HTTP traffic from an application (Rob Fletcher, its creator, refers to it as “basically a Groovy version of Ruby’s VCR”). As in VCR, recorded interactions are stored as YAML files; they can be hand-edited (and created!) if necessary and even committed to version control. As it is with many Groovy projects these days, its source is on GitHub, and Mr. Fletcher is seeking feedback. See the README for more.
