GlideRecord is a special Java class ( that can be used in JavaScript exactly as if it was a native JavaScript class.

  • is used for database operations instead of writing SQL queries.
  • is an object that contains zero or more records from one table. Another way to say this is that a GlideRecord is an ordered list.

A GlideRecord contains both records (rows) and fields (columns). The field names are the same as the underlying database column names.
