Using Castor JDO for SQL Mapping

October 3, 2002

[From ONJava.com]

Castor is a multifaceted software tool being developed under the auspices of exolab.org, an informal organization involved in the development of open source, enterprise software projects based on Java and XML. The primary function of Castor is to perform data binding. Data binding is a process that facilitates the representation of one data model in another.

While XML data binding is very useful, this article from author Jeff Lowery focuses on another aspect of Castor -- data binding of Java objects to tables, columns, and rows in a SQL database, functionality that falls under the heading of Castor JDO.
