How to remove a field? Difference between field reference and field other?
Let's say you have created a field on an entity and now you want to remove it. Which roo command you should use?
Another question is (sorry for 2 QNs in one thread) what is the difference between those two commands?:
field reference --fieldName car --type com.demo.Car
field other--fieldName car --type com.demo.Car
Thanks for the answers.

Remove a field by editing the .java file and deleting it. Roo will respond automatically. "field other" is used to add a standard private field into a class. "field reference" is used to add a 'many' side of a M:1 relationship, so it has the JPA annotations added to the field.
roo> help field other
Keyword: field other
Description: Inserts a private field into the specified file
roo> help field reference
Keyword: field reference
Description: Adds a private reference field to an existing Java source file (eg the 'many' side of a many-to-one)
