InfoQ has a detailed article on using the Grails framework,which is a Groovy-based alternative to Ruby on Rails, to access EJB3 domain components (or domain objects). All the way from entity objects over to back-end database tables through to a fully-working web user interface. It's a long article, but if you're interested in seeing what Grails is all about, it's, I think, the most complete Grails tutorial I've seen yet, and nicely covers the domain of integrating Grails with an enterprise system.
Thanks to the Java Posse for continuing to spread the word about Grails and Groovy.
