Does the book cover any design issues so as to give guidance on how to model certain relationships in your object model? Are there any experience notes that could be of benefit for developing an Object Relational Model that developers coming from a more database centric modeling approach?
Are there any other books you would recommend for ORM design?
We discuss modelling in the beginning of the book and preferred to just give modelling hints and helps as we discuss each feature rather than write a chapter devoted only to modelling. Developers learn how to model each concrete example, building on previous examples and experience. By the end of the book the reader should have a pretty solid understanding of how to model various designs, as well as how they translate to the database schema.
