You specifically mention SQL, what language are you trying to "meddle" SQL to? I expect, in any case, that it isn't going to be easy. It usually isn't easy to "meddle" two languages together. (I'm assuming here that "meddle" means the same thing as "meld".)

I don't know much about "DB development" myself, but Robert Martin's "Designing Object Oriented C++ Applications using the Booch Method" has a section about mixing DB and OOP. He basically says that you need to use down-casts to mix them. (Which implies that they don't mix well.) Received on Fri Feb 08 2008 - 13:29:00 CET
