Nested set plugin for Grails

We are happy to announce that our NestedSet plugin for the Grails framework has been released. The plugin creates a hierarchical structure on top of plain database records. A description of the “nested set” data structure can be found in Wikipedia.

The NestedSet Grails plugin is

  • non-intrusive – it does not change your data model, just adds one table
  • easy to use – just add “static nestedSet = true” to the domain class
  • versatile – it supports multiple hierarchies

Installation instructions and usage details can be found at the NestedSet plugin homepage.
