Subject Re: [ANNOUNCE] Abator renamed to iBATOR
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2008 20:01:01 GMT
I was thinking more like using timestamp or version field in the ibator
config. That way we give the developer the option. If you have quite a few
tables for creating CRUD, this will be a useful configuration.

will wait to see zoran's ideas on relationships.
