Grails Goodness: Create New Application Without Wrapper

Learn how to migrate and modernize stateless applications and run them in a Kubernetes cluster.

Since the latest Grails versions a Grails wrapper is automatically created when we execute the create-app command. If we don't want the wrapper to be created we can use the command argument --skip-wrapper. If later we changed our mind and want the Grails wrapper we can simply run thewrapper command from our Grails application directory.

Let's run the create-app command with the --skip-wrapper argument. If we check the contents of the created directory we see that the wrapper files are not created:

$ grails create-app --skip-wrapper sample
$ cd sample
$ ls
application.properties lib  src  web-app
grails-app  scripts  test
Written with Grails 2.4.4.

Join us in exploring application and infrastructure changes required for running scalable, observable, and portable apps on Kubernetes.
