But the world of fat clients is odd! It's a decision that has to be
made, the trade off between each client holding it's own connection
pool or all of them sharing a set of transactionless connections on a
Really we get around it by manually controlling when things hit the
database with the flush type on commit.
What I mean by work, is will I still be able to use a UnitOfWork with
begin/commit/rollback statements without actually using my database's
I don't really see how to use this DatabaseLogin class though, after
construction what class consumes it?
