Jeff Atwood can’t write a blog post to save his heinie. His stuff is never interesting, it’s poorly written, and it’s never germane.
Oh, wait. I have that completely inverted. All of his stuff is provoking, well-written, and mostly always pertinent. But I digress.
If you’re using or considering using object relational mapping to handle business object persistence then you need to read his post today which really refers to another one by Ted Neward. A buddy of mine is adamantly in the “O/RM rulz the woild!” camp. I remain a fence sitter, simply because I don’t have time to actively think out both sides. Maybe after I finish work on the book and sleep for a week or two.
I haven’t gotten through all of Neward’s original post, but both are good reads.
(Cool. I got both “germane” and “pertinent” in a post.)
