How do you break a Monolith into Microservices at Scale? This ebook shows strategies and techniques for building scalable and resilient microservices.

We can use the integrateWith command with Grails to generate for example IDE project files and build system files. We specify via an extra argument the type of files to be generated. We can use this command also to create a .gitignore file with some default settings for files to be ignored in Grails projects.

$ grails integrate-with --git

In the root of our project we have now have a .gitignore file with the following contents:

*.iws
*Db.properties
*Db.script
.settings
stacktrace.log
/*.zip
/plugin.xml
/*.log
/*DB.*
/cobertura.ser
.DS_Store
/target/
/out/
/web-app/plugins
/web-app/WEB-INF/classes
/.link_to_grails_plugins/
/target-eclipse/

If we would use Mercurial then we can generate a .hgignore file with the argument --hg:

$ grails integrate-with --hg

The .hgignore file has the following contents:

syntax: glob
*.iws
*Db.properties
*Db.script
.settings
stacktrace.log
*.zip
plugin.xml
*.log
*DB.*
cobertura.ser
.DS_Store
target/
out/
web-app/plugins
web-app/WEB-INF/classes

Samples written with Grails 2.3.7.
