Thanks Steve and Alek. As I mentioned wrappers delegating access to a containing class and simple copy to from a business class is what we do today and its a mess, its error prone and its totally manual, am I missing something? Every new attribute needs to either have a few lines more added to the business class to get and set its values. In a prior job I did use a system where persisted classes were generated as *Base classes where you were expected to implement the * extending *Base. This worked very well and reduced maintainability. I can of course imagine that for languages that are not OO it would prove to be a challenge (yes I dont use Python).
