Hi Taiq,

I've used Cayenne in a web application and if you are just wiring it
up for display (read-only, no input fields/etc), then there is not an
issue.  If you are wiring it up to actual inputs, I'd think you'd want
to be able to capture those changes to do a
dataContext.commitChanges().  If you don't commit the changes, they
still won't be committed to the database even if the user changes the

Hope that helps...

with it but the return object (ORM) is linked to the database so if i changed anything on
the return objects List when i do a select query it will be reflected on the database , so
all i want to do is just list the data but without any risk of having my data to be compremized
. the solution could be thet i take the List of objects and create with it another List of
Objects that are not releational with the database and send it back to the presintation tier
. but i dont want to generate a huge number of classes , so my question is :
