Thread: Hibernate or JDO or EJB or Castor or even others ?

    Hibernate or JDO or EJB or Castor or even others ?

    I need to determine/settle on a persistence mechanism to use for a new project.
    Which object/relational persistence mechanism will you use if you are starting a new project?

    Hibernate ?
    EJB Entity Bean ver 3.x ?
    Castor ?
    JDO ?
    Others ?

    Should I just write off EJB 2.x because of its “problems” and complexities and favor EJB 3 or Hibernate?

    I only want to choose those technologies with its spec already released to the public and there are already actual stable implementations & support by server vendors.

    Which strike the balance between being reasonably new but yet reasonably stable…with huge support from the developers community and vendors?

    Note: I'll develop on J2EE 1.4 (supports up to EJB 2.1?) as I think J2EE is too new. What do you think ?

    i would use hibernate, since it's mature and stable.
    ejb3 is a specification framework, which also includes specifications for a persistence layer. hibernate fullfills all specifications and demands to the ejb3 persistence layer and thus is a ejb3 persistence layer.
