(Quick Reference)

where

Purpose

Defines a new grails.gorm.DetachedCriteria instance that uses a disjunction (logical OR).

Examples

Basic query:

def query = Person.whereAny {
   firstName == "Bart"
   firstName == "Lisa"
}
Person bart = query.find()

Description

The where method defaults to a conjunction (logical AND) for the created query. The whereAny compliments the where method by allowing the creation of DetachedCriteria using a disjunction (logical OR).

For more information on using the where method see the dedicated section on Where Queries and Detached Criteria in the user guide.
