Beginning Java EE 6 with GlassFish 3, Second Edition delayed again

I'm looking forward to reading Beginning Java EE 6 with GlassFish 3, Second Edition. The book was supposed to be released at the end of July, but it has been postponed once to mid-August, and again to the end of August. Let's hope it's the last time the publication date is being delayed.

Grails 1.3.4 and the Functional Testing Plugin 1.2.7

I've reached the end of chapter 7 of Grails in Action, where functional testing is introduced. I was using Grails 1.1, but I encountered some problems with the Navigation plugin, so I upgraded to the latest version. The good news is that the Navigation plugin is now working fine. The bad news is that the Functional Testing Plugin is not ! "grails create-functional-test PostList" does not create PostListTests.groovy in the functional directory. It looks like somebody already reported that problem. No hands-on exercise this time. I'm not going to bother downgrading Grails to make it work.
