Subject on hibernate vs. cayenne
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2008 14:47:02 GMT
Since we've been on the topic of hibernate and cayenne... I had a  
question for those cayenne users who have used hibernate.
On the tapestry user list, there's been some discussion lately about  
generic edit pages for objects.  Most recently, a user mentioned  
having 30 entities and thus having 30 edit pages.  The user was  
wondering if there was some way to have a single edit page for all of  
those entities.  I have an app right now with about 20 user-editable  
entities.  The "view" page for all of these entities is the same.  The  
"edit" page for all of these entities is the same.  Note also that  
this includes sorting, and the view table does interesting things like  
filtering, sorting, links between objects in relationships, etc.  All  
of this is possible largely due to cayenne's rich support of object  
meta-data, with lots of information about properties and relationships.

So my question is: does hibernate make the same amount of metatdata  
available that cayenne does?
