comment What is the common approach to component template databases?
@JimmyHoffa, most importantly, that question is limited to 3 similar relational designs. I'm not limited to that paradigm as they must have been. I need something that works on a large scale with modular objects, which none of their approaches will.

even so, I will stick with asking programmers since I want an answer with a broader rational than what I might get from someone who mainly works in implementations of databases.

A key difference is that I have the check_in_feature table. In terms of the linked question, my duck, cat, and human, would be wires, contacts, etc. Where I differ is that I have the check_in_feature table which is an extra dimension on top of their problem. I have multiple instances of the same animal as opposed to single instances of different parts. This is where my problem comes in. The animal features need to be all treated as a whole under the check_in, to do that there are painful joins. I'm using the EAV approach they mentioned, but with my extra dimension, it doesn't work as well.

I disagree, I'm not administering a database here. I'm designing the program and coming up with a more effective approach to my data structure. I think programmers can help me much more than database admins when deciding what data structure to go with. The fact that my data structure is persistent and might end up on a technology that they are familiar with seems irrelevant.

not everyone graduates college at 22. I worked for a while and went back. I guess I worded it wrong, I was trying to get across that I don't know very much and need help fitting my bosses expectation of a more sr programmer.

right, but I wouldn't have invented MVC on my own. I would have discovered some other architecture that is probably less effective in code separation. I still need the experience, the books that have been suggested are good for what I want. The one mentioned in this post seems to be what I wanted.

and the rest of the post pretty much lays out why I'm not good. Not sure how you got that I'm conceited
