I can hardly believe everybody seems to take this statement for granted (jdo and jcr APIs
are ofcourse totally redundant since you can write your own fine sql statements, and of course,
sql is a brilliant strong specification, so when you have it running for oracle, you can switch
automatically without effort  to mysql, derby, hsqldb, sql server)...anyway, if everybody
wants to write sql, do many xsl transformations and take the burden of maintaining sql statements,
be my guest :-)
