Hi, yes please. It's always good to see different implementations.

I hope so. There was a discussion some time ago about the "associative data model". IMO that's the killer way to go for IOS! And that's what I now going to implement. I use the "associative data model", business objects, relations etc. and want to build a generic application to handle all kind of business requirements. I don't see why we need specialized applications? The next thing will be to generate the appropriate GUI on the fly. IMO we need specialized GUI's depending on what you want to see, do etc. But the data model should be completely decoupled.

No, no. Compatibility is way to much overestimated. Just provide some migration tools ;-))

No problem. Just let me know. Robert
