Hi,

Is anyone able to explain to me the line in bold below from Listing_08_02_mini_gorm.groovy

Object methodMissing(String name, Object args) {
println name
db.find { it[name.toLowerCase()-'findby'] == args[0] } //#1
}


Any help is appreciated

Thanks,
Yemi

I think I got this now, the findby is chopped off the full name of the method
