Page: Build System, Version:1

This document describes how the build system for Grails projects works. It does not describe how to build Grails itself.

When you run a Grails command, you are actually executing a Gant build script. Gant is a build tool based on Groovy and Ant that can be readily embedded in other applications.

The Grails build system is wrapped by the easy to use command line interface, but it is possible to hook into it directly if you so choose.
