I couldn’t find news of the release on the main page of SQLObject, nor could I find release notes at SQLObject.org (or in the release itself), but I did find news of 0.7.0 which mentions features and bug fixes. I didn’t find a date on this news entry, so I don’t know if this is for 0.7.0 in general, or if it is for a specific build of the 0.7 line. Hopefully, this will be pertinent to rc1.
I’ve used SQLObject now on a couple of small projects and have been pretty impressed with it. I’m not afraid of SQL at all, but it is nice to have a well-built, general-purpose data abstraction layer nicely packaged and ready to use. In the projects in which I’ve used SQLObject, I haven’t had to write a line of SQL - even to create the database schema.
As I mentioned in this blog entry, I really like SQLObject, but I feel like I need to re-re-read the docs. I’m having a small issue creating (what I feel are) the “right” relationships between one object type and two other object types which the first type links to. I’m certain I’m just not doing something right. This experience doesn’t leave me with the feeling that SQLObject is an inferior library. It leaves me with the feeling that I need to spend a little more time with it and make it do what I want it to.
Great library. Good work, Ian.
