Hello folks, I've been looking for information on the design for object persistence using JDBC and a relational database. The goal is performance and no application server is involved, so no EJB... I'm wondering how you guys have been designing this. A framework, object persists itself, locator classes and so on. I've seen some concepts on the web but I'd like to know and discuss how people are really having this done. Any books/web-sites with real cases or good samples are very welcome too. Thanks in advance.
