Hi All
I have 2 domain classes

class Book{
String name

Author author
}

class Author{
String name


}


Now if I do

Author bookAuthor=new Author("BOOk Author").save()
Book book1=new Book(name:"first book",author:bookAuthor).save()
Book book2=new Book(name:"second book",author:bookAuthor).save()
Book book3=new Book(name:"third book",author:bookAuthor).save()

Can I do something like this

book3.author=null

so that I disassociate the book fro its author without deleting it from the database


Regards
Maharaj Thak

Yes, but only if you define author as nullable in the book constraints. And vice versa for Author. You'll want to make book nullable.

When posting code, please remember to UseCodeTags. Our system makes non-formatted code really difficult to read.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
