Subject Re: Limits & Joins on Oracle
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2011 17:18:34 GMT
Hi Chris,

Your solutions are in consonance with what I said in my mail. But having 
fields with the same name is quite common. For instants all our primary 
keys are named ID and for all our tables we always have columns like 
last_modified_at, created_at, last_modified_by or created_by which we 
use for logging purposes. So it would by critical for us to have this 
issue resolved. I am willing to give it a try if someone could point me 
on the right direction in terms of cayenne inner architecture of objects
