  Flawed Understanding of JDO Leads to FUD

Bravo! You got it! Rather than spend a lot of time trying to find flaws in JDO, which there are really few as a Java centric technology, I was trying to point out in my article the flaw in the approach of continuing to map attributes to relational databases when object-relational technology allows us to define our classes, that is attributes and behavior, in a persistence layer.


It's rather comical that I had to send my "correct" code to onjava.com three times and it still got mashed in the process of being posted. Either way, does one obvious defect in an article's listing make the code of poor quality? Only if you're so taleneted as to always write perfect code.

    Point taken, and my apologies to you regarding the code. Given that your code was correct when sent, each of three times, the burden lies on the site editors to make sure that the listings are correct. Which, come to think of it, is where the burden lies from the get-go... *shrug*

    I'm glad to hear I did understand correctly. What are your thoughts regarding my contention that O/R technology is, as yet, not mature enough for more than basic use? Am I correct, and to what degree? I suspect that you, as the domain expert, know fifty-dozen ways to get around the limitations (and I should, of course, read your book...), but are they "easy enough" yet? What are the flaws in the current implementations, and what would you change if you could?

    Thanks for your input.
