Using Grails and Glassfishv3

In case you missed it, an important feature is being worked on in order to support direct deployment of a Grails application in Glassfish v3 (see Getting Started with Grails on Glassfish). According to Mr. Gupta, they are working towards being able to deploy a Grails app to GFv3 using the grails commands (currently Grails uses Jetty). Also they are working on deploying a Grails App for production purposes without having to create a WAR; which is the current method. Both of which will definitely improve developer productivity when using Grails and GFv3.

And since it was recently announced that GFv3 can run on OSGi, I think GFv3 continues to look very interesting.
