Dan Malks, co-author of "Core J2EE Patterns", says: Core JDO is
packed with valuable information and provides a strong foundation for
building JDO-based Enterprise applications."
Rick Cattell, Distinguished
Engineer at Sun Microsystems, says: "This book provides an excellent
introduction to JDO persistence, transactions, queries, cache
management, and use with EJB containers. It provides an incremental
explanation of the concepts, from a general overview to detailed
Ambler, author of Agile Database Techniques and other books,
says: "All Java developers working on business applications should
understand the implications of JDO. This book helps them to do just
Marc Fleury, President and Founder JBoss Group, LLC, says: "When
JBoss Group looked at the available APIs for orthogonal persistence, JDO
emerged as a finally mature standard. It was clear we needed to
implement JDO in JBoss. This book is very well written, with a balanced
mix between specification coverage and practical tidbits. A must read".
Neelan Choksi, President,
SolarMetric, says: "Core JDO is a must read book for those
interested in Java Data Objects. The authors provide a solid
introduction to the JDO standard but then focus on how to use JDO in the
real world, reflecting their experiences as members of the spec team as
well as application developers."
Eric Samson, President, LIBeLIS,
says: "As a JDO vendor we are very keen on this book. This is a book
that Java architects and programmers can use to save weeks when they
want to build and deploy critical J2EE transactional applications."
David Tinker, Hemisphere
Technologies, says: "Core JDO is a clear and detailed treatment of
JDO. The JDO and EJB chapter is essential reading for anyone involved in
Enterprise Java development."
Gopalan Suresh Raj, Chief
Architect, hywy Software Corporation, says: "Core JDO probes the
innards of JDO and explains everything lucidly, from the fundamentals to
its most advanced features (using JDO with EJB, JCA, Security,
Transactions, etc). The book stands out as an excellent JDO resource for
both Architects and Developers alike. Congratulations and thanks to the
Authors, Sun, and Prentice-Hall for bringing out such a great book on
Dirk Bartels, General Manager, JDOcentral.com, says: "The Core
JDO Book provides the reader exceptional in-depth information about JDO.
What I like in particular is that the book doesn't stop by just
explaining the technology in a vacuum. It provides plentiful guidance
how to use it in real world application environments such as J2EE, it
includes a very helpful comparison with JDBC and helps the reader to
make a more informed decision on his application database architecture,
and almost all topics are accompanied with extensive code examples that
help learning JDO the easy way."
McGovern, Enterprise Architect Hartford Financial Services and author of
several Java technology books: "JDO is one of the most intriguing
specifications to emerge from the Java Community Process within the last
year. Many architects struggle with the impedance mismatch between
relational and object based technologies when building large scale
enterprise applications. The authors have done a great job of explaining
how to bridge oriented-oriented applications with relational and other
data store paradigms. The controversy surrounding JDO and other
standards, specifically JDBC and Entity Beans are clearly resolved
within this book. This book is well written and is suitable for
developers and architects alike. If you like reading complex
specifications, then you most likely would not purchase this book. If
you want to cut to the chase, then this book is for you. You will not
find a better book anywhere. The authors have demonstrated thought
leadership from cover to cover. I wish I'd written this book."
