Riflexo released JCredo Professional and Enterprise editions designed to boost JDO applications performance in both managed and non-managed environments, through the easy management of local and external caches, with query cache, LYRA replicated cache and a plug-in to Tangosol Coherence. Riflexo also announced that JCredo standard edition will remain free during 2004.
JCredo Standard Edition includes all JDO 1.0 features, advanced features such as built-in L2 cache, prepared statements caching and batch execution, full support of Java Collection framework, native SQL support in queries, query extensions and transaction flushing as well as some JDO 2.0 advanced features like named queries and attach/detach API.
JCredo Professional and Enterprise editions both include Query Cache, LYRA cache - Riflexos replicated cache specifically designed for the JDO standard - and the ability to use Tangosol Coherence as a clustered cache. The enterprise edition also supports BEA WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, JBoss, Sun One Application Server 7 and Macromedia JRun application servers. These professional editions are brought to the market at a very competitive price with comprehensive 24 hours/day customer support services.

Good old Tangosol Coherence seems to pop up in partnership with any product that may need distributed caching as a plugin. Nice to see Cameron's name in press releases :)

I don't understand how this is news. Kodo 3.0 has been out for over a month now, and they are going to be releasing a maintenance release soon as well.
I've tried both these products, and Kodo's excellent documentation and newsgroups made it a better choice for my project than JCredo.
I don't understand how this is news.
Na, Steven, that's a plug for Tangosol, of course. They think we are a bit silly.
Andreas: that's a plug for Tangosol, of course
Falem bem, falem mal, mas falem de mim ..
Coherence: Clustered JCache for Grid Computing!

Good you're mentioning customer support. Let me take this opportunity to say that Riflexo is the first JDO vendor to offer 24 hours/day support.
Unfortunately, Steven, you don't happen to be registered neither in our customer database for documentation, nor in our free forum. It's a shame you didn't read the documentation before writing this message: it's only 30 euros!
Let me also underline that JCredo standard edition is free, Kodo is 600$ (including documentation).
Please allow me to mention that Hibernate is open-source, reliable, flexible and comes with good documentations.
Correct me if I am wrong, but Hibernate is just an OR mapper, not a JDO implementation.
Hibernate is an orm attempt to achieve similar things as jdo. I really like it. Nice job Hibernate team. Thanks
Now there is some news.
Kodo just released v3.0.1 today which is the maintenance release I mentioned before.
