Hi Roland, this sounds to be a creat book, one that I would definitly consider. I just want to know if DB2 v9 has been looked at or rather DB2 has been looked at, with particular reference to the mainframe. As accessing and using SQL against this particular databases requries additional considerations in particular using SQL against the database.

What databases were used during the writing of this book?

The reason for my question is that the word Enterprise, to me means it also look at the technologies no readily availabe and tend to apply to huge organisations such as banking, insarance and other organisations of considerable size and data processing.

We are currently in the process of evaluating these different approaches for accessing and persisting data in Java, but using DB2 on the mainframe and our applications running within J2EE environment (Websphere Application Server). Would this book assist us in our decision or rahter clarify some of the technologies available, with particular emphasis to J2EE and maybe towards DB2?

Thanks
Francois

So, we do discuss issues like the database you use might determine the persistent framework you use. The examples themselves use Apache Derby because we wanted anyone to download the code and use it. However, we do discuss things like patterns for Batch versus online, and chapter 9 focuses on pureQuery (with things like pureXML) which works best on DB2.

In general, this book will help you because we discuss J2EE (Java EE, as well as Java SE) persistence and Enterprise patterns.

Thanks for the question.
