comment When is it necessary to use ORM tools?
@JustChris - I realize you don't agree with the philosophy. One way forward would be to use an ORM and show the boss that you have finished the work much earlier than expected. Of course, depending on the boss that may be a bad move...

@rwong - But first, the code review tool would need to determine the language. This might not be trivial, depending on the contents of the file, the language in question and file name.
