In construction, scaffolding is a temporary framework that supports workers and their working materials while a building is under construction or repair. In Grails, the term has a slightly different meaning. Scaffolding in Grails means generating artifacts (controllers and views) that satisfy a set of requirements. An example of a common requirement is the ability to perform CRUD operations on a domain class. By using scaffolding, you can generate the necessary controllers and views to perform such common tasks.
