Hi Daniel, I looked over your presentation
> on your ORM
named 'DBR' <http://search.cpan.org/~impious/DBR-1.0.7rc6/
and have a few comments:
1 - how do you choose LEFT versus INNER joins using DBR?
2 - You say that other ORMs do not manage hostnames ,usernames,
(a) I'm sure that Rose::Conf does this, because I had to do it
(b) I personally feel that an ORM should not manage hostnames, usernames
and passwords --- that is application configuration information and
belongs in a configuration module, not in an object-relational mapper.
Why do you think that an ORM should handle hostnames, usernames and
passwords? Just imagine if you had multiple languages processing a
database --- instead of a central set of database connection
configuration files, each language would have their own copy of the same
data. And should there be a change, that data would have to be changed
in each place instead of one place.
