> 4) The rise in interest to more closely combine program logic > with query logic (LINQ etc.) Actually, this is very much what object databases tried to do, and I think it's a mixed blessing. I think it works if you raise the level of the programming language so that it's declarative and has awareness of the database schema and type system. I don't think it works if you lower the level of the data manipulation language so that it's procedural and lacks that awareness. That's what a lot of object database systems tried to do, and I think it's what LINQ does. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
