Fixing a Grails plugin cache issue

I’ve been working on this small application as I continue to tinker around with Grails, and set the source code management up through GitHub so that I can synchronize across machines.

Grails’ dateCreated and lastUpdated properties

Grails’ dateCreated and lastUpdated properties

    I’m in the process of learning Groovy and Grails, and Grails has this neat feature called scaffolding where you just create a domain class like a User and all its properties, and it’s auto-create a full CRUD to be able to create/read/update/and delete. class User { String userId String password Date dateCreated Date coolStuff Profile profile } Which when creating, will generate a form like this:    ...
