Subject Re: other open source projects using ddlutils?
Date Thu, 08 Dec 2005 22:32:56 GMT
I just learned that Cayenne (http://objectstyle.org/cayenne)  will be
able to use a generic DataObject class in their 1.2M9 build.  They have
a lot of accessible metadata just like DDLUtils does; but their downside
is that they can't/don't alter the database like DDLUtils does.  Their
upside is that they have all the nice persistence optimizations like
lazy loading of related rows, prefetching, catching, etc.

Too bad the XML data definition formats between the two are different

I cannot think of one actually.

Absolutely agree. Who knows one day I will open source mine, although
my solution has the goal of actually totally hiding the concept of
"databases" to the users.
Though I can think of lot's of other open source projects that
currently have pod (plane old ddl :) in their source tree, where
ddlutils would be very useful..
When we are closer to a release, I will try to propose usage of
ddlutils to some of those projects.

Afaik, out of the box they both need pre-compiled java classes, though
I think OJB is flexible enough to add support for eg DynaBeans. I am not
an expert at all on this, so your safest bet is to ask the questions on
the torque and ojb lists anyway.
