Recently I was building a solution for managing some contents. I used a document oriented database for storing the actual contents. One requirement was to be able to reuse content. The reuse strategy picked was, by faking references. So there was no duplication and embedding of data, instead, there was a referencing solution. This post is about the shortcomings that I’ve found with going that route.
