A domain class fulfills the M in the Model View Controller (MVC) pattern and represents a persistent entity that is mapped onto an underlying database table. This class will map automatically to a table in the database called book (the same name as the class). This behaviour is customizable through the ORM Domain. GORM is Grails’ object relational mapping (ORM) implementation, which sits on top of the very popular Hibernate framework. If you are familiar.

If you have a property called “none” on your domain class, this approach won’t work currently! This works well for single-ended associations, but you need to be careful with one-to-manys. Each comparator changes the nature of the query.

Create Record To insert a row to the person table, your code will look like this: He says that “The flush: It cause many headaches when Hibernate flushs on 16 lines ahead of execution and it brings pain to debug.

6 Object Relational Mapping (GORM)

To update an instance, change some properties and then call save again:. For example, the following class creates a nicknames association that is a Set of String instances: For example, you may cause it to insert then later vorm, when a single insert might have been sufficient. ConcurrentModificationException when using this method The graiks side of the relationship, in this case Authortakes responsibility grals persisting the relationship and is the only side that can cascade saves across.


A domain class can be created with the create-domain-class command: Table of contents 1 Introduction. They hold state about business processes and hopefully also implement behavior.

The reason for this is quite technical but ultimately the problem arises from GORM using a left outer join.

However, let’s start with the basics. An alternative to eager fetching is to use batch fetching.

Once you have a domain class try and manipulate it with the shell or console by typing:. The same behavior is required for List types, since Hibernate needs to load horm entire association to maintain order. See the section on Hibernate Integration for how to write domain classes in Java but still use dynamic persistent methods.

Given an Author with a large number of associated Book instances if you were to write code like the following you would see an impact on performance: It seems excessive perverse that I would have to iterate through the entire result set calling delete on each item. For example this will work and cascade saves: Also read part 2 of gogm GORM Gotchas series of articles to get a deeper understanding of relationships and cascading.

But in GORM, it seems they are merged together. A common error that may occur is gorj you violate a database constraint, although this is normally down to a programming or schema error.


See the section on Hibernate Integration for how to write domain classes in Java but still use dynamic persistent methods. Wouldn’t it be easier and more efficient if we just think in terms of objects and forget about tables? Pagination and Sorting The same pagination and sorting parameters available on the list method can also be used with dynamic finders by supplying a map as the final parameter: Once you have a domain class garils and manipulate it with the shell or console by typing: Create, Read, Update, Delete CRUD When you have prepared your domain class, you can then immediately write code to create, read, update, or delete records to the database already without writing any plumbing code.

You can also load an object in a read-only state by using the read method:. Basic Querying The where method accepts a closure that looks very similar to Groovy’s regular collection methods. Batch fetching can also be configured at the class level as follows: From the User Guide about deleting objects:.

You can configure Hibernate to lazily fetch results in “batches”. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
