Working with Relational Databases


Even if you do not develop Web 3.0 applications, the material in this chapter will save you time and effort when working with relational databases. Specifically, I’ll discuss object-relational mapping (ORM) and provide a tutorial on two effective ORM frameworks: Active-Record and DataMapper. I think that a trend in Web 3.0 development will be a continued reduction in the cost of development and software maintenance. I expect to see continued improvements in the expressiveness of ORM frameworks based on domain-specific languages (DSLs), which will make development more efficient.
