Well, most times I'm using it are for when I have a nested structure defined
defined by a parentID column in the same table and you can have n umber of
nodes in your tree. I get too lazy trying to figure out how to get an ibatis
map populated n-levels deep of nested nodes, so I typically just return a
map of all values... key: id, value: thObject.

Then I just go and manually iterate over the values of the map and add if it
has a parentID I find the parent in the map by id and then it as child to
the parent. Seem to work pretty well, but maybe there's a more efficient way
to build up a tree?
