A Change from Zend, try Grails
I’ve been working with Grails for the past few months and I really like the platform. Having worked with frameworks such as Zend, Grails comes as a breath of fresh air.
Grails is an open-source web application framework that leverages the Groovy language and complements Java Web development.
Its based on the MVC framework and it simplifies the work involved in getting your next web application up and running
