(Quick Reference)



The create-scaffold-controller command creates a controller that scaffolds the given domain class, based on convention.


grails create-scaffold-controller org.bookstore.Book


Creates a dynamic scaffolding controller for the given domain class. If the domain class does not exist, the command will fail. With the above example, this command will create the file grails-app/controllers/org/bookstore/BookController.groovy that declares a controller class containing a static scaffold property.

Note that this command is just for convenience and you can also create dynamic scaffolding controllers in your favourite text editor or IDE if you choose.


grails create-scaffold-controller [name]
