There were two sessions on using pureQuery with Groovy at IOD. One of the sessions was a joint one that I presented with my friend Vladimir Bacvanski at InferData, who, by the way, offers a pureQuery course.
Here's a description of the session we gave at IOD:
This session was due to be held on Friday morning.Vladimir and I created the first ever (we think!) Groovy, pureQuery and DB2 Static SQL application on Thursday night, 10/30/08 at 11:14 pm PDT at a casino in Las Vegas.
In getting prepared for the Friday session Vladimir and I started experimenting on what is possible. Groovy is Java, and pureQuery is also Java-based, so hypothetically we should be able to completely mix and match it. So, we thought, let's try using sMash's Groovy to quickly build a database web 2.0 application that leverages the power of DB2 static SQL execution. After some hacking, at 11:14 we built a small Dojo app that received data using JSON from DB2 that was using static execution. Waaaayyyyyy coool!!!!! We got so excited about how cool, easy and quick it was we ended up playing with the app till 2 am in a Las Vegas Casino cranking out code.
