This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I need to build a CMS-like tool. But it won't just host files, or data, but needs to be able to host all sorts of data and be able to correctly display (and handle them) to the user as though they were all the same type of thing. Some data will be documents like Word, Excel, PDF or MPG. Other data will be from a database. Other data will be "computed" from the other data, and still more data will be from calendars in outlook. I do not know much about JDO but thought that it seemed the only thing that really gave me a chance to deal with all of these as "the same." My questions: 1. Does JDO sound like it could play a part in this? 2. Can any of the JDO implementations handle these disparate types of data? 3. Are there any Open Source JDO implementations I could use to do this or at least do it in a dev environment to try it out? 4. If no current JDO implementation can handle these, would it be ridiculously tough to create a JDO implementation? (I know that's a pretty vague and unanswerable question, but...)
Thanks in advance. Any help you guys can give me is much appreciated! Dan
