Grails ways of getting grails application object



Following are the few ways which you can use in your grails project.

1. def grailsApplication

This has been the most common method to access grailsApplication till now, but after grails 2.3.6 this sometimes gives null pointer exception. So you can go with the next method.

2. GrailsApplication grailsApplication

The null pointer exception is resolved when you access grailsApplication using this method. But don’t forget to import "org.codehaus.groovy.grails.commons.GrailsApplication".

3. domainClass.grailsApplication

While trying to access grailsApplication in a domain class use this method.

4. ApplicationContextHolder

You can also access it from ApplicationContext using the following approach.

class ApplicationContextHolder implements ApplicationContextAware {
  private ApplicationContext appContext
  void setApplicationContext(ApplicationContext applicationContext) {
     appContext = applicationContext
  }
  static ApplicationContext getApplicationContext() {
     getInstance().appContext
  }
  static GrailsApplication getGrailsApplication() {
     getBean('grailsApplication')
  }
}
Declaration in bean :
1
2
3
applicationContextHolder(ApplicationContextHolder) { bean ->
  bean.factoryMethod = 'getInstance'
}

Now get grailsApplication wherever you need using :
1
2
def applicationContextHolder
def grailsApplication = applicationContextHolder.getGrailsApplication()

5. Using Holders :
1
Holders.getGrailsApplication()

6.  Using servletContext :
1
2
3
ApplicationContext context = ServletContextHolder.servletContext.getAttribute(GrailsApplicationAttributes.APPLICATION_CONTEXT)
  as ApplicationContext
GrailsApplication grailsApplication = context.getBean(GrailsApplication)

Multi Threading , Producer consumer problem in Java

Multi threading is topic which is always fascinating for java developer. I feel its more about practical the theory. So here i wanted to present sample examples which clear understanding for several multi threading concept.

In Theory basically thread which is light weight process.Thread shares mostly same memory space.
I said mostly because there is some space called thread local which is not common to threads & separate for each thread. We create thread whenever we wanted to use multicore of processor although that doesn't mean single core cant use it. In single core context switching works among different running thread.

for example suppose there is website which is showing latest price as well as offer as well as doing order booking all these things can be assigned to different thread to provide parallel processing.



There are 2 ways for creating a thread.

Extend a thread & Implement a Runnable class. Extending a class is little avoided since it closed possibility for e…
