Thanks for the hint, Henrik.

No, we are heading a different direction. We want to query the database directly with objects of the respective programming language.
We will try to omit an inbetween step through a string represantation.

The advantages:

- reuse of business objects
- typesafe queries
- improved performance
- reduced overhead and resource consumption
- less sources of error
- less implementation work for db developers

According to Konstantin Knizhnik, a member of our group, our Query-By-Example approach was a competitor to SQL, when RDBMS began to be successful.

Regards,
Carl
