Last night I had a real breakthrough in my study of WebObjects. Unfortunately, I don't have the WO 4.01 databases, so I haven't been able to do some of the exercises in the Programming WebObjects course I'm doing. Instead, I downloaded FrontBase and installed it, created my own model, and completed the exercise.

Well, sort of.

What I did was create my own project - a simple web-based threaded discussion group. I modeled the Message, User, and Enclosure entities, and generated the database in FrontBase. Then I used DBEdit to enter some data into my Message database. Finally I managed to Fetch the message data (including replies!) from the database in WebObjects. WooHoo!

Next up: creating new messages!
