Martin Fowler called one style an Application Database (what SQLObject prefers) vs. an Integration Database (where the database is authoritative and the communication medium for multiple applications).

I should really write a more thorough summary of why it's hard to be reasonably efficient with an ORM while also being compatible with an Integration Database style. Not impossible -- it's just a matter of what your expectations are. Hmm... I've never properly written up the performance issues of an ORM; I should do that so I can refer to it at times like these...
