Hi Andrus,

Are you saying that I can use cayenne 3 (but just 3.0M2 release)?
As we are beginning with cayenne, what features does version 3 have that
make it better than 2.0.3?

Right now our webapp is in production using cayenne 2.0.3. So, we put
cayenne (in this case 2.0.3 and me, by suggesting it) in trial situation
with this project (a survey system). The first phase will be just
inclusions (collecting data, about a moth), after that will reports and
graphics (mainly statistics).
Well, thank is all I can say now!

We thought about it some time ago, but we didn't have enough knowledge
to put something like that in production and support it.
But I think in our situation this may happen and sure we will try report
the results to the mail list.
