public GrailsUtil()
Method Detail

bootstrapGrailsFromClassPath

public static ApplicationContext bootstrapGrailsFromClassPath()

Bootstraps a Grails application from the current classpath. The method will look for an applicationContext.xml file in the classpath that must contain a bean of type GrailsApplication and id grailsApplication

The method will then bootstrap Grails with the GrailsApplication and load all Grails plug-ins found in the path

Returns:
The Grails ApplicationContext instance

bootstrapGrailsFromApplication

public static ApplicationContext bootstrapGrailsFromApplication(GrailsApplication application)
Bootstraps Grails with the given GrailsApplication instance

Parameters:
application - The GrailsApplication instance
Returns:
A Grails ApplicationContext

bootstrapGrailsFromParentContext

public static ApplicationContext bootstrapGrailsFromParentContext(ApplicationContext parent)
Bootstraps Grails from the given parent ApplicationContext which should contain a bean definition called "grailsApplication" of type GrailsApplication


getEnvironment

public static String getEnvironment()
Retrieves the current execution environment

Returns:
The environment Grails is executing under

isDevelopmentEnv

public static boolean isDevelopmentEnv()
Retrieves whether the current execution environment is the development one

Returns:
True if it is the development environment

getGrailsVersion

public static String getGrailsVersion()

deprecated

public static void deprecated(Class clazz,
                              String methodOrPropName)
Logs warning message about deprecation of specified property or method of some class.

Parameters:
clazz - A class
methodOrPropName - Name of deprecated property or method

deprecated

public static void deprecated(Class clazz,
                              String methodOrPropName,
                              String version)
Logs warning message about deprecation of specified property or method of some class.

Parameters:
clazz - A class
methodOrPropName - Name of deprecated property or method
version - Version of Grails release in which property or method were deprecated

deprecated

public static void deprecated(String message)
Logs warning message about some deprecation and code style related hints.

Parameters:
message - Message to display

warn

public static void warn(String message)
Logs warning message to grails.util.GrailsUtil logger which is turned on in development mode.

Parameters:
message - Message to display

sanitize

public static Throwable sanitize(Throwable t)

Remove all apparently Grails-internal trace entries from the exception instance

This modifies the original instance and returns it, it does not clone

Parameters:
t -
Returns:
The exception passed in, after cleaning the stack trace

printSanitizedStackTrace

public static void printSanitizedStackTrace(Throwable t,
                                            PrintWriter p)

printSanitizedStackTrace

public static void printSanitizedStackTrace(Throwable t)

isApplicationClass

public static boolean isApplicationClass(String className)

extractRootCause

public static Throwable extractRootCause(Throwable t)

Extracts the root cause of the exception, no matter how nested it is

Parameters:
t -
Returns:
The deepest cause of the exception that can be found

sanitizeRootCause

public static Throwable sanitizeRootCause(Throwable t)

Get the root cause of an exception and sanitize it for display to the user

This will MODIFY the stacktrace of the root cause exception object and return it

Parameters:
t -
Returns:
The root cause exception instance, with its stace trace modified to filter out grails runtime classes

deepSanitize

public static Throwable deepSanitize(Throwable t)

Sanitize the exception and ALL nested causes

This will MODIFY the stacktrace of the exception instance and all its causes irreversibly

Parameters:
t -
Returns:
The root cause exception instances, with stack trace modified to filter out grails runtime classes
