Actually, as a general rule I don't "fight against" JDO. There were a lot of good things in that spec and I don't have anything against either the spec or the great folks that contributed to it (you amongst them!). I do pipe up, though, when people say outrageous things like "JDO 2 is a far better specification than any other standard" since it is not only very biased but I believe quite misleading to readers.
As to the future of JDO, most people have expressed the same opinion, but I won't say what it is. Anyone that cares or that is interested should do their own homework and come to their own conclusions, not get them from people closely affiliated with either the JDO spec (you guys) or the JPA spec (me)
