    DataObject::get - Filtering by many_many relation Link to this post

    Say I wanted to get a dataobjectset of all articles in a given category based on the relationship defined in the classes below... what would be the nicest way to do that in a DataObject::get() call?

    class Article extends DataObject{
       static $many_many = array(
          'Categories' => 'Category'

    class Category extends DataObject{
       static $belongs_many_many = array(
          'Articles' => 'Article'

    Currently I have just been doing a reverse lookup like

    DataObject::get_one('Category', 'URLSegment = 'cheese')->Articles();

    But that is not suitable in all cases
