Hi,

My query is in regard to the technology as such.

Earlier, EJB 2 gained more significance, it was potrayed that any enterprise application should have it as the backbone of its structure. But, later on the focus shifted on to ORM, a relational mapping structure which tries to make a light weight approach, reducing the overhead of heavy weight in terms of the components deployed. With the increased quantum of enterprise applications growing day by day, the need for applications to suffice greater challenges are also growing. In such a case, where would ORM approach stand. Is it the destination or is it a means for something to come in the mere future?

Thanks
Srini

I'm not sure I follow this question. EJB and ORM are not directly comparable technologies - one is a specification designed to allow componentised development in a managed environment, the other maps objects to relational data. ORM is not replacing EJB, though it has largely replaced entity beans. What is it you are asking?
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
