Service Usage

A service contains business logic that can be reused across a Grails application. In Grails a service is a class with a name 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 org.bookstore.Book

or with your favourite IDE or text editor.

package org.bookstore

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

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