Grails - Exisiting Oracle Table

Grails is very straightforward in creating NEW tables, but I am having trouble mapping to an EXISTING table. One of the problems being that it appends id and version to each table. Maybe I need to add some entries for static mapping??? Thanks.

You can declare a custom identify for your tables, see the docs at Custom%20Database%20Identity
Then Grails will not attempt to create an id field.

Also you can turn off optimistic locking, which prevents the version field form being created:

These questions made me ask if you have read the Grails docs, and/or if you have purchased a Grails book - there are several good ones on the market.
