The golden rule is to use the approach that best suits what you need to do
in a task or a group of related tasks. I use datamodules a great deal, for
the convenience of locating application-wide objects and their methods
inside a single unit. But that won't stop me from locating data objects on
forms if it suits better for a particular thing - for example, a popup
maintenance form that is created and destroyed as required and might not be
required in every session. "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's".
