State Management: Shape and Storage: The insidious and slippery problem of storing objects to disk
No matter your language or platform, a large part of the time and energy required for modern enterprise development centers around managing the transition between transient (working) state and durable (stored) state. What exacerbates the problem even more is the fact that these two are often stored in different "shapes"--transient state is typically in objects, and durable state wants to be stored relationally, and it’s not trivial to map between them. If you consider the growing pervasiveness of XML services, now we have a third “shape”, that being a hierarchical form. We’ll talk about what makes this such an insidious and slippery problem, what tools are available to help address it, and mechanisms we have to avoid the problem in the first place.
