Seen on InfoQ, this one hour interview of Linda DaMichael. Hopefully, JPA 2 will become much more complete in its scope and coverage of persistence needs. It is nice to see JPA is now standardized outisde the EJB 3 specification, because it is obviously a very generic standard. And eventually we'll be able to align and synchronize JPA and the DAS.
And JDO 2 is still here when persistence is not limited to RDBMS.
Xcalia is obviously committed to implement JPA2. Our JPA implementation will rely on our current JDO implementation.
