Just read that Grails has won the Second prize (5.000 euro) in the yearly JAX Innovation Award. And that after Groovy won the First prize a year earlier. As Grails developers we know the Grails/Groovy platform is truly innovative compared to other web frameworks, but it is good to see the recognition from such a public award.
The JAX Innovation Award were presented and awarded to the winners during the conferences JAX, SOACON and Eclipse Forum Europe. The three conferences are taking place at the same time in Wiesbaden and represent the most important meeting for professional information technology in Europe.
