I've seen it before, but completely forgotten about it. Thanks for pointing it out.

I will participate in a project in a nearby future and is collecting ammo against OR/M. The application in question is a typical datacentric one, where critical data is read from the database and presented to the user. I've heard suggestions from parts of the project that the data model should be generated by the OR/M, and I am, let's say sceptical to this approach. Received on Fri Oct 01 2010 - 08:04:07 CEST
