Hi all,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this but is there a technology in Java/J2EE which would compare to ADO in the MSFT world? I have not read much about any of the data access technologies available in the Java world so I am just looking for some direction. I have been seeing Hibernate and JDO mentioned in many places but have not investigated either.
I guess I am looking for a reccommendation from users who have used either and could reccommend whichever is most like what I have experience with (ADO).

Thanks

Sal

I haven't used ADO myself so I might be blatantly wrong, but isn't ADO just an API for database access -- not an object/relational mapping layer? If that's the case, the Java equivalent would be JDBC.

I've never used ADO, but I think the equivalent thing is the JDBC RowSet API. You might even like to check out iBATIS:

http://www.ibatis.com/

This is a very reasonable approach if you don't need your data as a very strict object-oriented domain model.

Thanks IBatis seems to be what I was looking for.

Regards
