Mapping Objects to Tables

Both at work and at play I've been thinking about the various ways that objects are mapped to databases. So my interest was peaked when this post appeared on the Python DB-SIG mailing list pointing to a this page on the Python wiki listing the available modules that attempt to simplify the object-relational impedence mismatch.

Of course now I've got to find time to go and look at all of those modules. That will now be added to the bottom of my exceedingly long to do list, behind updating the gadfly documentation, updating the dbBrowser PythonCard sample, writing the slides and notes for my Python UK Conference presentation and reading all of Scott Ambler's essays on the agile data web site.

I should probably fit in some actual paid work as well. All of which means that I should probably stop wasting my time posting to this blog and actually get on with it.

Be sure to make comments on each for the record, as there's a move afoot to include some sort of object-relational wrapper in Python itself.

I'm not sure if you're aware, but including gadfly has also come up (see the latest python-dev summary).
