(Quick Reference)



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


Basic query:

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


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).

The where method is a powerful new type-safe querying option introduced in Grails 2.0. For more information on using the where method see the dedicated section on Where Queries and Detached Criteria in the user guide.
