Java 2 Enterprise Edition


I am planning a software project using J2EE, and wonder how suitable Tamino would be for data storage. In my experience Entity Beans in Enterprise JavaBeans are very much linked up against tables in relational databases.

According to my understanding Tamino returns XML when queries are made, and I wonder how this would fit into the EJB framework? Does anybody have any experience of using Tamino alongside EJBs.


As far as I know - there is no official annoucement yet, so please take it just as a hint - development ist working on a “JDBC-light” driver that handles container managed transactions. Container managed persistence isn’t possible right now because, like you stated in your post, the whole thing is SQL-centric. Has to be done the old way through Tamino Java API and your own code.

Hope that helps a little,
