Microsoft's recent unveiling of the next
generation of ADO.NET has pretty much crystalized a long
running hunch that the era of standardized client/user level
interfaces for "Object-Relational" technology is neigh. Finally,
this application / problem domain is attracting the attention of
industry behemoths such as Microsoft.
In an initial response to these developmentsOrri Erling,
Virtuoso's Program Manager, shares valuable
insights from past re. Object-Relational technology developments
and deliverables challenges. As Orri notes, the Virtuoso team
suspended ORM and ORDBMS work at the onset of the Kubl-Virtuoso
transition due to the lack of standardized client-side
functionality exposure points.
My hope is that Microsoft's efforts trigger community wide
activity that result in a collection of interfaces that make
scenarios such as generating .NET based Semantic Web Objects (where
the S in an S-P->O RDF-Triple becomes a bona fide .NET class
instance generated from OWL).
To be continued since the interface specifics re. ADO.NET 3.0
remain in flux...
