I am not a gump expert :-D

The following is to try to explain how it works, it is not an excuse in
any form:

The problem while inserting a row in the JDO sample is clear: How it would
insert if the called code is in a missing jdo.jar?

OJB has 3 APIS inside PB, ODMG and JDO. Currently, we can use any of them
to interact with DB inside Cocoon. If I turn off one of 3 in the
cocoon.xconf I cannot expect to be able to insert in a DB using the
missing API.

The OJB build system needs an explict special tag "with-jdori" to use the
JDO stuff.

The cocoon build system (CBS) allows succesful compile even if there is
not a jdo.jar at all without any special switch. The CBS "detect" the
presence of the jdo.jar. We also wrote mocks classes just in case there is
not a jdo.jar at all.

Best Regards,

Antonio Gallardo
