Grails Commands for Running Grails App

grails run-app 

  • Runs an application during the development phase 
  • An embedded Tomcat server is launched that loads the web application from the development sources, thus allowing it to pick up any changes to application files 
  • Not recommended at all for production deployment because the performance is poor 
    • Checking for and loading changes places a sizable overhead on the server 
    • grails prod run-app removes the per-request overhead and lets you fine tune how frequently the regular check takes place 
  • Setting the system property "" to true disables this regular check completely, while the property "recompile.frequency" controls the frequency
