EJB design: Castor as an EJB O/R mapping tool?

  1. Castor as an EJB O/R mapping tool? (3 messages)

    Does anybody have an experience with using Castor as O/R mapping tool for entity beans? Our team is looking for an alternative to commercial mapping tools. By now we are using Castor for XML mapping and the tools works great.

    Thanx in advance

  2. As far as I remember, Castor uses JDO, no need in entities if you use JDO. :)

  3. Sure, but it's list of features (http://www.castor.org/status.html) contains the following position:

    Provides support for EJB 1.1 CMP entity beans (release 0.9) and CMP finder declaration using OQL

    I would like to know if someone have some experience with this.

  4. No, didn't test it yet. But why not, ODL fits nice to be another "where-clause" language for CMP. :)
