4.0 out of 5 stars Please allow me to disagree..., Jan. 7 2010
I don't have a rating on this book because I haven't bought it yet. I was about to when I read the previous review.
I should say I disagree with the reviewer's opinion on Scott Ambler's work. I have read Ambler's articles since the late 1990s (Ronin Intl) and have bought most of the books written or co-authored by Scott Ambler. I do believe most of the concepts/ideas implemented in ORM ([...]) frameworks such as Hibernate/NHibernate, JDO, JPA are there thanks to articles/whitepapers like the ones Ambler has published. I might be wrong but the Object-Relational Impedance Mismatch was first coined by Ambler.
My short advise, read Codd then read Scott Ambler, but don't get stuck on the "SPROCs and cursors" world, move on.
Done, bought!
