Dealing with money in Groovy and Grails has so far pretty much looked like everywhere else on the JVM. A Grails Currency Plug-in exists, but has been inactive for 2 years.

Thanks to JavaMoney-shelter, a sandbox or "sanctuary" for new ideas to be adopted around JSR 354, e.g. via Adopt-a-JSR this is about to change with JavaMoney Groovy plug-in. Now that JSR 354 is final, the Groovy team signalled interest to include some of it into Groovy itself. JSR 354, the Java standard for Money and Currency enhances the capabilities of Java handling monetary data. Based on best practices regarding currencies, monetary amounts, rounding, formatting and currency conversion.

In this session we'll demonstrate JSR 354 support for Groovy and Grails. And how to use it in business applications or DSLs e.g. for currency conversion between HUF and other currencies.
