This week's book giveaway is in the Other Open Source APIs forum. We're giving away four copies of Storm Applied and have Sean Allen, Peter Pathirana & Matthew Jankowski on-line! See this thread for details.
Planning on developing a fast and reliable data access framework to be used as a data access layer for read only data on a relational database. Will be integrated into the BEA Weblogic App server. Looking for some inputs from the geniuses out there. What would be the best mechanism going about this. I am planning on using the DAO but i have heard that they are not as efficient as POJOs. Any kinds of inputs will be very useful and highly appreciated. TIA
Do you know what those terms mean? Data Access Objects ARE Plain Old Java Objects! The best place to start with this is Fowler's "Patterns of Enterprise Access Architectures". After that, you should probably investigate the existing open-source frameworks that do the same thing (like Apache Castor) Kyle
