hi! what about hibernate in the upcoming java-versions, are there big differences to expect in the framework or will just the new languages features be adopted where it fits? looking not at the next 2 or 3 but maybe at the next 3 to 15 year, how persistend can hibernate as a framework be estimated, considering upcoming changes of programming paradigms (for example multithread-programming)?
cheers

I doubt anyone (Sun included) can say much about what will be happening in 15 years time!

I don't think Hibernate will have a choice about adopting new language features where they enhance or replace core components of the language. Hibernate is written in Java, so this is just going to have to happen. Where new featrues are optional Hibernate has shown in the past that it will use those that fit its purpose; for example the adoption of Annotations to provide a mapping mechanism.

If you can tell me what the new Java language features will be in the next 15 years, I will be more than welcome to answer you
Hibernate is already concurrent friendly on the server side as one session is completely independent and uncorrelated to other sessions wo sharing any state. We had multi processors on the server side for years and you never noticed any problem.
The more interesting challenge will comes from the future of databases. Solid state drives and maybe transactional memory might shuffle how we use databases in the future. But nobody knows really how. Once we will know, we will see how to adapt Hibernate.
