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.

6 Object Relational Mapping (GORM) – Reference Documentation
Reloading using another query would trigger a flush which could cause problems if your data isn’t ready to be flushed yet. If you like my posts, like my Facebook page please: My advice is that the autoFlush grails.
Given an Author with a large number of associated Book instances if you grakls to write code like the following you would see an impact on godm Once you have a domain class try and manipulate it with the shell or console by typing: Note that flushing is not the same as committing a transaction. They hold state about business processes and hopefully also implement behavior. The closure should define the logical criteria in regular Groovy syntax, for example: Don’t worry otherwise as GORM is straightforward and easy to learn.

The generated table in MySQL is below: Too bad however that it does not cascade deletion of rows in child tables. If you try to reload the instance using get Hibernate will return the current modified instance from its Session cache. To help manage a situation like that, GORM may be configured to prefix table names with plugin names by default.
grailss Hibernate then initializes the proxied instance, or throws an exception if no record is found for the specified id. This can be a significant performance boost for applications that do a lot of database writes. Domain Object Create a groovy class inside the domain folder E. The where method is more flexible than dynamic finders, less verbose than criteria and provides a powerful mechanism to compose queries.
But if you wish to modify this, the config file to edit is DataSource. However, let’s start with the basics. It cause many headaches when Hibernate flushs on 16 lines ahead of execution and it brings pain to debug.
If one or both of the domain classes is provided by a plugin the application author may not have access to those options. Table-per-hierarchy mapping has a down side in that you cannot have non-nullable properties with inheritance mapping.
To guide Grails to the correct mapping, you can tell it that a particular association is unidirectional through the mappedBy property: The following table provides a map of Groovy operators to methods: For example using the list method on the Content super class will return all subclasses of Content: Each property maps to individual columns.
Table of contents 1 Introduction. For example if you had an Airport that had 30 flights, if you didn’t configure batch fetching you would get 1 query to fetch the Airport and then 30 queries to fetch each flight.
I think you may validate your object before, and do not rely on an ORM operation in order to realize that you are trying to save crazy things on the gprm. So actually the direct and exact answer to the question about autoFlush is: Wouldn’t it be easier and more efficient if we just think gails terms of objects and forget about tables?

Considerations At the database level Grails by default uses grals mapping with a discriminator column called class so the parent class Content and its subclasses BlogEntryBook etc. They hold state about business processes and hopefully also implement behavior. This has the implication that other read operations will be blocking until the lock is godm. Update To update an instance, change some properties and then call save again: Set into the domain class based on the hasMany setting.
