Take Away: For several years now, Object Relational databases have intrigued many developers, myself included. Most of us also rely on more traditional RDBMS systems. Well, a debate is raging, and you're invited to join.
 A blog topic from wes's Blog


As I've mentioned before, I have a "bent" toward databases. They've always fascinated me, and, virtually since the day I began programming, databases played a big part in my projects.

I was lucky(or unlucky?) enough to get my start before RBDMS systems were anywhere near prevalent. My tools included dBase, Btrieve, and the very cool Emerad Bay (now departed from the scene).

When RDBMS's became more prevalent and, more importantly, relational theory became better understood, I embraced it eagerly.

But I've only ever had my hands on a couple of ODMBM products - that was several years ago - and I found them disappointing.

The major disappointment was in the area of reporting. While old "flat file" and RDBMS systems had great support for producing reports, the ODBMS products I tried did not.

Still, a debate rages about which is better and, thankfully, the discussions are taking into account the nature of the applications contemplated.
