You've used GORM in Grails apps, you've written custom criteria and HQL queries, and now you're ready to take database access in Grails to the next level.
In this talk we'll look at some advanced GORM topics including using database views to map domain classes to multiple tables, writing a Configuration subclass to fine-tune domain class mappings and customize Hibernate beyond what GORM mappings provide, how to create immutable read-only domain classes, and some tips for monitoring database access.
