Grails object relational mapping (GORM) is one of the most powerful features of the Grails framework. Project bootstrapping and CRUD scaffolding are nice things to get you started, but GORM continues to pay off throughout the development of an application. Even maintenance tasks become simpler and more fun with GORM. Now, with Grails 2, GORM has become more powerful and easy to use than ever.
In this presentation we’ll discover what GORM is and what it does for us. We’ll cover dynamic domain class methods, dynamic finders, one-to-many and many-to-many relationships, Hibernate Criteria Builders, new Grails 2 Where Queries, and more. We’ll also take a look at some things to watch out for since, after all, this is Object Relational Mapping we’re talking about.
