LOL, you've hit the nail on the head there. I think in any discussion along these lines that the scale of the solution environment has an impact. The larger the environment, the more likely that data needs to be shared across paradigms and languages. Vice-versa, smaller environments would seem to benefit (dev, mod, & maintenance time) from the single data model OO would ideally offer (one model from front to back: GUI, business logic, datastore). Any comments?
