It struck me as quite an important article, and raised some questions:
* is all the Grails example code (including scaffolding) handling
database interaction poorly?
* is the article correct in its assertion that most Grails apps should
be using a combination of optimistic locking and explicit locks when
updating GORM objects? (i.e. pessimistic optimistic locking)
* have I overestimated the importance of this article, and if not why
has there been no discussion of it either on this mailing list, or on
Thanks for any thoughts - I'm very curious about this!
