The first is equating tables with classes. Tables are really variables!
The first leads to the second, attributes containing /pointers/.
Is there a reason an RDBMS intrinsically cannot work well in a virtual memory environment, perhaps using memory-mapped files, where memory is used as a cache? If everything fits into RAM, great! Otherwise, the performance degrades gracefully?
