Date Sun, 10 Jan 2010 19:30:54 GMT


Øyvind Harboe commented on CAY-808:

Sometimes it is necessary to interface to live legacy databases where no porting is possible.
It's pretty easy to wip up an adapter that is good enough to "use around the house" for this

> Currently all committed Cayenne adapters include support for reverse engineering and
schema creation. I think that's overkill for MS Access and FoxPro. FoxPro and MS Access would
only be used in applications for bug-by-bug compatibility with some existing application and
not as a backend for Cayenne if the developer has any say in the matter.
> Couldn't Cayenne support adapters of two types: full and simple? Simple being only basic
read/write access?
