In my experience, users don't like multiple windows unless the app really, really calls for them to use two views simultaneously. More so with a web app as users don't tend to open more than one window - and most I have experience of don't even use multiple tabs unless they are nagged into it!

So if you have a parent window open, then click "Add new Child" and it opens a child window, and then in that child window they can click a button to "add grandchild" I think most users would run around like headless chooks if they could get back to the grandparent window without first closing the parent and child - which is, I think, what you are suggesting?

My way of handling it depends on the exact scenario and how often it is likely to occur. e.g. if the only time it happens is when you are creating a new school, and the software is generally run by a single school, then it's not too important - they are unlikely to create new school, add a location, add a room, then go back to the school and press cancel - so I don't let them. I would generally keep the object tree in memory until they save the school with all its children (if it's a relatively infrequent and small object graph) or write them away to the db but be prepared to go ahead and delete the whole tree if that's really what they want to do.

The user, I think, doesn't expect anything abt creating hierarchies - that's not how they think - so I guess if they did create school, location and several rooms, save the room, save the location then cancel the school, they would expect it ALL to disappear - after an appropriate warning, I suppose!
