Take 60 minutes to understand the Power of the Actor Model with "Designing Reactive Systems: The Role Of Actors In Distributed Architecture". Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

If you have multiple domain objects and controllers in your Grails application, like here:

...it is easy to switch between a domain object and its controller, if you set shortcuts for doing this, which is (very hidden) here in "Keymaps" of Options window:


After setting shortcuts like the above, when you have a domain open, press the shortcut "Go to Grails Controller" and then the related controller class will open. Same the other way round. Also, even if the domain isn't open, but only selected in the tree view, the controller will open when you press the "Go to Grails Controller" shortcut. Same applies to views, which can also be thrown into the mix as you can see from the screenshot.


Learn how the Actor model provides a simple but powerful way to design and implement reactive applications that can distribute work across clusters of cores and servers. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.
