Mosey on in and pull up a stool. The JavaRanch Big Moose Saloon is the place to get your Java questions answered. Our bartenders keep the peace, and folks are pretty friendly anyways, so don't be shy!
Over in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum, Edward Chen opened a bottle of worms with this thread starter:
This question has haunted a while.
Usually, we firstly check the porject requirements and set up tables, and then do 1/2/3-NF normaliztion.
I don't like this way, because it is not Object-oriented way. So any body could share exprience how we use OOP to design complicate table schema/relationship?
Now, mosey on o'er, see what folks are saying and chime in with some thoughts of your own.
