Did you perhaps mean modeling instead of mapping?

Object models and data models can look deceptively similar, but the details are sometimes quite opposite. Help us understand your current comfort level with either or both types and maybe we can fill in some of the blanks.

I think you may be alluding to the object/relational paradigm mismatch. If you go to the Hibernate web site, you'll find discussions of this:

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
