To enable that behavior the grails. Instead, a method is auto-magically generated using code synthesis at runtime, based on the properties of a given class. In other words, saves and deletes will cascade from Face to the associated Nose: Under the hood it uses Hibernate 3 a very popular and flexible open source ORM solution and thanks to the dynamic nature of Groovy with its static and dynamic typing, along with the convention of Grails, there is far less configuration involved in creating Grails domain classes.


This method is not to be confused with a limit to just the first row. Mark Byers k He says that “The flush: If you want a Map of objects then you can do this: To create a domain class you run the create-domain-class command as follows: The following table provides a map of Groovy operators to methods: Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled.

If you “really really” need to hide, log it as warn. To update an instance, change some properties and then call save again:. Wouldn’t it be cool if we could save information to the database by having this instead? Alternatively, if it becomes gor, problem you can resort to pessimistic locking.

And of course this works for normal domain classes too, not just self-referential ones. String name String description. Each property maps to individual columns. With batch fetching you get 1 query to fetch the Airport and 3 queries to gorj each Flight in batches of So when you set the parent property on a Person instance, Grails will automatically set the supervisor property on the other Person instance.
