Dear Pals,
Intention of my company is to use seperate tools as necessary in our java projects, like for logging use Log4J, for unit test use JUnit etc. Now we are planning to use a middle tier that will ease database manipulation through object and relational databse mapping or object persistance. Something close to JGrinder.
But JGrinder community support is almost stopped now and so I am worried whether it would be good in long term to think of.

Instead I have browsed Avalon, Expresso and JRelational Framework so far. Avalon is good, in fact very good and it comes from Apache. But it's learning curve is higher same as Expresso. These two have a lot more things integrated in them other than the object persistence that I need. If I would get time possibly i would opt for Avalon.
But now I find a good alternative JRelational Framework, something that suits my need. And so I want your opinion here.
Tell me how good it is, what margin of community support it enjoys and anything else you would like to comment.
Thank you and waiting....

If you're into some sort standards whereby you can obtain a pool of human resources with J2EE skills, then maybe Avalon is not quite a good choice. Really not very sure where you can get a good open source J2EE framework, but I have heard of Arch4J and some commercial ones called WMEE and RealMethods.
Even the Expresso in my opinion is not quite J2EE....at least they were not written that way when they started. That's why a new project called Expresso Enterprise has started....currently in 1.0 beta format.
As for object relational mapping....he one that's full on J2EE is Cocobase....but that's commercial. The best open source (based on personal arm chair evaluation) would probably be Hibernate. Try this comparison URL http://c2.com/cgi-bin/wiki?CayenneVsOther
what if we put solar panels on top of the semi truck trailer? That could power this tiny ad:
