"There is a great tragedy in the world of Java that rarely gets discussed. All around us, every day, the horror continues, yet we pretend it's not there, even as we stand in the shadow of the towering monsters it begets. The horror mocks and humiliates java programmers across the world, constantly pulling the rug out from java and it's Great Promise: to rid the world of the evil's of C. We won some battles - no more header files! no more malloc()! - but for some of us it seems we may have lost the war. I'm talking about JDBC."

I've been using JDO in anger on a serious project for the last few weeks, and so the next couple of blog posts will detail my experiences and analysis of the state-of-play with JDO.
