Yes, Ari, I did spend personal time looking into "why use an ORM" as my 
first step.  I already appreciate that I do not want to scatter SQL 
statements throughout my code (I could tell that through my first 
step), and I look forward to happily using Cayenne and contributing 

Thank you!  I have been watching the interchange with this group, and 
can see that members support one another eagerly.

You are probably already aware of the superficial 'why use ORM' 
ments [1]. Beyond that, you should read through all the guides on 
the web site, probably skipping the JPA Guide at this time and also 
skipping the Remote Client Guide if you are not using ROP in your 
After you've done that, please come back to the list with any specific 
questions you have. There are lots of helpful people here who'll be 
happy to help you. Once you start using an ORM I guarantee you'll never 
want to scatter bits of SQL through your code ever again.
