Grails Tutorial for Beginners - Layout Templates

When coding screens, there are many elements that are common and repetitive. Usually the header, footer, and sidebars stays the same and only the content at the middle of the screen that change. The best approach is to have your GSP page contain only the specific business content, and have the repeating content re-factored outside. Grails supports layout templates for this particular purpose.
