Grails Tool Window

The Grails tool window is accessed by selecting Grails in the drop-down list located in the left-hand part of the title bar in Project Tool Window.

The special Grails tool window shows logical project structure displaying Controllers, Domain classes, Views, etc. as the Grails application elements rather than files and directories. From the Grails view, you can:

  • Gain quick access to the application elements and their contents
  • Navigate between the controller actions and associated views.
  • Edit Groovy scripts from the Scripts directory
