Accessing Data Through Persistence Frameworks

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From developer.com]

About the Frameworks Series

Besides the Java language, a world of Java frameworks exists. These frameworks can afford substantial improvements in programmer productivity and enhance the quality, performance, reliability, and interoperability of different Java applications. Fortunately, many of these popular and widely used frameworks are open source projects, so anyone can benefit from them if he can invest some time learning when and how to use such frameworks. This article is the second installment in the frameworks series and aims to introduce persistence frameworks in general and the open source Java persistence framework, Castor JDO, in particular.
