MariaDB Grails

MariaDB is a popular open-source relational database management system that is a fork of the MySQL database. Grails, on the other hand, is a web application framework for the Java platform. It is based on the Groovy programming language and uses the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture.

To use MariaDB with Grails, you need to set up a database connection in your Grails application’s configuration file. Here are the steps to do that:

  1. Install the MariaDB database server on your machine and create a database that you want to use with your Grails application.
  2. Open your Grails application’s application.yml file, located in the grails-app/conf directory.
  3. Add the following configuration settings to the file:

[codesyntax lang=”cpp”]

    driverClassName: org.mariadb.jdbc.Driver
    dialect: org.hibernate.dialect.MariaDBDialect
    username: your_username
    password: your_password
    url: jdbc:mariadb://localhost:3306/your_database_name
  1. Replace your_username, your_password, and your_database_name with the appropriate values for your MariaDB setup.
  2. Save the application.yml file and start your Grails application. It should now be able to connect to the MariaDB database using the configuration settings you provided.

You can now use the Grails GORM (Grails Object Relational Mapping) framework to interact with the MariaDB database from your Grails application. GORM provides a simple and intuitive way to perform CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations on your database tables using Groovy domain classes.
