And hello to Kyle too. One of our moderators is an author on this book.

I have a review posted for this book. Cameron was kind enough to post a picture of the cover since Amazon has some confusion on the order/number of the authors.

Great! I actually was looking for a book that compares persistence layers of different enterprise applications. It'll be a great help for my SCEA certification.

Actually, I was somewhat disappointed. I thought maybe Roland and Kyle had merged into one super, cyber-Java-organism called a Kyle Barcia, but alas, it was a typo at amazon.

Welcome Kyle and Roland!

This book had 5 authors in general..The Kindle edition has that mistake, but the general entry I think is OK.

We should also welcome Geoffrey Hambrick, who may be on the forum this week as well.
