If you mean my JIRA entry, then I agree.  But, hey, you started the 
"iBatis is a spreadsheet" analogy!  ;-)

Anyways, IMHO, I think we very badly need support for disconnected 
"datasets" or resultsets in iBatis.
A concept like strongly typed datasets from .NET will be a /dream/!

IMO, the current way iBatis does things makes it more of an ORM than it 
does a "collection based" data
abstraction layer.  :-)   And the last thing I want to do is waste my 
time defending ORM for iBatis' sake!
