I was wondering why there is a JDO Specification in the first place? And how can we be sure that the JDO Specification is truly the best approach for Data Objects?

It's not Gregg, we just haven't figured out a better one to standardize on

Are we sure that JDBC or EJB are the best interfaces for relational access or distributed object manipulation?
JDO was standardized in the Java Community Process from 1999 - 2002. It had input from many people that have been doing object persistence for a number of years.

Could you tell us why JDO seems to be a little "obfuscated" in Sun's plans?
Is this situation caused by the presence of EJBs?

Suffice it to say that the EJB folks in Sun have the political advantage in Sun at this point. But from what I hear, interest in JDO is growing inside Sun, just as it is growing outside Sun.
Craig Russell should be visiting this site this week and maybe he can address Sun's plans relative to a JDO implementation besides the reference implementation, which works on files and not JDBC sources.
