I am looking for an easy way to map objects in a huge database based on a jee applications. This JEE Application will supports Java1.5 and EJB3
My candidates are: - pureQuery(tm) - JDBC native - Hibernate - Spring
On my first web inquiries I saw that the newer hibernate versions are using simple annotiations, where a developer doesnt need to write XML files. Thats a pretty good thing. But which "Framework" is recommended?
PS: It is important to map several tables in one object! [ February 19, 2008: Message edited by: antonio bartulovic ]
Personally I would also recommend using JPA, as it has the most persistence products supporting it. Since JPA is just a spec, you will also need to decide on which JPA product to use, but the advantage of using the spec is that you can easily switch what product you use at any point.
