>>OO philosophy is founded on 'encapsualization', where attributes
are collected into 'objects' that make some sort of sense in the problem (business) domain. Relational databases are all about breaking that encapsualization, to efficiently search for information.
The motive behind encapsulation is information hiding. The motive behind database building is information sharing. You can hide information or you can share it. Take your pick. Received on Wed Jun 10 2009 - 13:49:15 CEST
