Generic grid data structure.
The data structure is mostly adapted to the jQgrid json format, but it can be adapted to
any reasonable grid library, with a little effort.
The optimal way to handle this would be with generics, just passing in the domain object name into an .
. . . But Wait! JaxB doesn't really know what to do with generic declarations on its xml elements, so we
do the next best thing. Every time we want to create a new grid instance, we create a new subclass and reimplement
nearly identical functionality, but with a few small changes. Those changes being the pojo class we use for the
rows property, and the buildRows function that we use to populate rows, That really should be the only change
in the subclasses.
If somewhere down the road, someone finds a way to easily mashall generics through Jaxb, the buildrows functionality
could easily be promoted up here.

|| The current page
|| The total number of records
|| array of number
|| Row ids of every row on every page
This data type is abstract. The example below may be incomplete. More accurate examples can be found in subtypes pages.
"total" : 12345,
"page" : 12345,
"records" : 12345,
"rowIds" : [ 12345, 12345 ]
