what I mean by this is that in my return to programming/IT I lucked into a position developing web apps using WebObjects. Object persistence is brand new to me as are many things found in WebObjects that have now become standard practice but I've taken to this like a duck to water.

If I were to start my own programming projects at home what would best mimick the coding environment I have here at work using open source products?

In looking up how to do something at work I found that hte guy who started Tapestry (or is it Cayenne) did so because he himself worked on WebObjects for a time and saw how it could benefit the rest of the world by I guess simplifying development.

Any ideas? I'm a clean slate and very impressionable.
===============

A little more googling and it is Cayenne that is based off of WebObjects.

What is the opinion of Cayenne around here? Versus other ORMs?

Difficult to answer because you don't say what you use at work.

The entire JDK is nearly open source, and there are some excellent IDEs available which are open source (eg NetBeans, Eclipse) . . .

That any use to you?
