There are plenty of things that can be re-written without losing data.
See "serialization compatible changes." Beyond that, as i mentioned
before, I'm already looking at ways to build a merge-type tool.
The fact of the matter is I need transparent POJO data management for my
client base and I know of no other way to achieve that. I recognize the
need for a small segment of the data to be relational in terms of access
and that we're looking at providing a back-door for.
At the end of the day there are always advantages and limits to every
tchhnique. A good craftsman does not so fall in love with his hammer he
forgets how to turn a screw, or vice versa.
And if he hist himself in the thumb with the hammer a few times, he
asks "what am i doing wrong with this tool." He doesn't throw it away.
