Unfortunately there are many more opinions than experts.


Quote:
the entire idea behind ORM is wrong


Yes, yes it is. But "solution providers" need to sell a "problem" in order to sell their product. No problem -- no sales.


Quote:
more than 10 years already


Ergo, before generics. Generics are a much better "solution" to this particular non-problem.


I also agree with...
Luca Cavagnoli:
SQL-speaking objects is a terrible anti-pattern that violates all principles of object-oriented programming


Indeed. Another particular anti-pattern I hear is "an object should be able to persist itself" -- no, an object should absolutely not
know how, where, when, or whether it is stored; that leads to tight coupling. If it can save itself to SQL Server, can it also save itself to Oracle, MySQL, or XML? Or are those options no longer achievable without a whole ton of refactoring?
