Subject RE: Mapping of one object to several tables?

I think that depends on what the OP was asking.

In Hibernate you can because it cascades the object insert into mutiple
database inserts.  

However, in some databases I believe you can do an insert to a view, as
long as the underlying joins are "simple" enough.

Can you even do an INSERT that involves multiple tables?
