I think anyone who wanted to look at an iBatis store I say go for it.  
JDO is not bad, but JPOX has proven to be less then robust. If we  
were using Kodo it would be a different story and it's too bad that  
BEA did not release the JDO bindings for the JPA stuff.

I would also say try another tool like a JDBM store so that you get  
the magic three. If the store API was fleshed out and worked with  
three backend implementations you would have something that works. I  
think part of the problem is that we've let JDO shape the store API  
instead of arriving at an ideal API. I think this can only be  
accomplished by attempting to use another back end store.

If Rahul wants to try iBatis I say let it rip.
