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)

GOF Design pattern with Java & Real World Examples

What are design patterns? 

So basically these are just collection of best practices to solve recurring problem by different kind of class arrangement. These arrangement could be based on creation of object or structural basis or on basis of required behavior.




Creational Design Pattern
Prototype Designpattern we will like to use this designpattern whenever creation of initial object & setting required default values is costly. So we just create 1 object & later on whenever more objects required we can provide initial object by just cloning of given object.Java Example is java.lang.Object#clone()
Builder DesignPattern When we jave object structure are complex and complicated we would go for this. we will be separating object creation from internal representation. With help of some simple interface we would create complicated Object.
Singleton When we need one instance per JVM. Example : Java Run time environment Java.lang.System.  java.lang.StringBuilder, Spring Beans are singleton …
