Sven Haiges has convinced his employer to give Grails a shot, and he's decided to chronicle his journey in a weekly Grails podcast.  He gives an honest play-by-play of his successes, the occasional bumps along the way, and the workarounds as well.  He's hit the ground running, and the second episode discusses connecting Grails to a legacy database schema, his interview with Groovy project lead Guillaume Laforge, and Eclipse support for Groovy and Grails.  It'll no doubt be interesting to witness the real-world adoption of this promising framework.  Kudos to Sven for sharing his experience and for choosing podcasting as the way to do so.
