I would try Hibernate. Its a solid, open-source implementation with good docs and an active user community that provides good support.

But not JDO? Granted the implementations aren't really open source. How much of the book is devoted to database-oriented POJOs such as Hiberate/JDO, versus POJO's in other contexts?

Hibernate is a great tool, but very complex.
I recommend iBatis - much simpler with much of the benefit.

David,

I am curious. Please could you elaborate on why you consider iBATIS to be simpler than Hibernate.
