Designing the Data Model


In this Grails Example, we will design and build the remaining models for the ProjectTracker Application. We will first design the data model on paper by defining the individual entities, which will become models. We will then describe the attributes of each entity, which become the fields in our views. Finally we will include the relationships between entities by creating one-to-many joins between the entities. Once we have the design sketched out, we will go into Eclipse and create the models, fields, and joins.
