How to use AirORM: A Flex ORM based on ActiveRecord

First, let me say that I had always found the Adobe Air platform intriguing from the standpoint that it allows you to build a traditional 'desktop' application using web-based languages such as Flex, HTML, and Javascript. After recently discovering it also natively supported Sqlite for data persistence, I found myself compelled to build something on it, which says alot about a platform. If it makes you want to build on it, it must've accomplished some kind of architectural goal, right? Of course, being a fan of Ruby's ActiveRecord ORM and other similar ActiveRecord implementations, the first thing I looked for was a flex version. Enter AirORM. Its admittedly very "alpha" but for personal projects, it did the job. There isn't alot of documentation, unfortunately, so I'm hoping to help out with this simple video tutorial:

    Brief, but thanks for adding to the sparse doc on this. I just came across it on a project I'm on.  Threw me, but once you get it, it's really helpful for ORM in AIR.  I wonder why it's so not doc'd or heard of.   There's an ORM AIR project on github too.
