Service Usage

A service contains business logic that can be re-used across a Grails application. In Grails a service is a class that ends in the convention "Service" and lives in the grails-app/services directory. A service can be created with the create-service command:

grails create-service Book

Or via your favourite IDE or text editor.

class BookService {
    Book[] getBooks() {
        Book.list() as Book[]
    }
}

Refer to the user guide topic on Services for more information.
