Hi Paul, actually I'm not doing a large set of joins on this, but rather 
tier my selects and subselects using the ResultMaps. (It would be cool 
if there was some hybrid ResultMap/ResultClass structure.) And rather 
than list all of the columns out, as you do, in your queries, I just do 
select *, since I am explicitly doing the mappings in the ResultMap.

There definitely is more overhead in using Ibatis over Hibernate, but I 
love the fact that I have control over the SQL, and find the exceptions 
(when they happen) to be generally informative rather than obscure. It's 
a tradeoff.
