Hi Christoph,

CDO topics should be discussed in the EMF newsgroup, which I've added to this conversation.

It sounds as if you've invested considerable analysis and development effort into this new list mapping, even if it
seems a bit incomplete and even if there are (still?) some drawbacks. So I will want to look more closely at your code,
but right now is a bad time for me because I'm with a customer this week and that's pretty exhaustive already. I suggest
that you submit a bugzilla and attach your changes in form of a workspace patch for easier application. Until I come to
review it you can easily add new patches when you have more changes.

That said, it strikes me that some of the restrictions you outline below are hard to accept (some even hard to
understand), e.g. not being able to read a collection while you can write to it.

To make it easier to test your mapping it would be nice to also patch the typical test scenario IConfigs so that we can
run the regression tests.

So much for now in my limited time ;-)

It needs some adjustements in the applications, but it was not really blocking for us since we are widely using CDOView.createQuery(SQL, SQL_QUERY) method. I think we could easily make it work by delegating to the standard mapping strategy, otherwise we would need the check all cdo_resource of all tables... Simply awfull.
