+= About JDO =
 
-We're just getting started.  
+Java Data Objects (JDO) is a standard way to access persistent data in databases, using plain
old Java objects (POJO) to represent persistent data. The approach separates data manipulation
(done by accessing Java data members in the Java domain objects) from database manipulation
(done by calling the JDO interface methods). This separation of concerns leads to a high degree
of independence of the Java view of data from the database view of the data.
 
-Currently, we have the MailLists setup - if interested, please subscribe and participate.
+Commercial and open source implementations of JDO are available for relational databases,
object databases, and file systems. 
 
+JDO is being developed as a Java Specification Request in the Java Community Process. The
original
+JDO 1.0 is JSR-12 http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=12; the current JDO 2.0 is JSR-243
http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=243. 
+
+= About Apache JDO =
+
+Sun Microsystems has decided to donate Java Data Objects (JDO) to the open source community.

+Both of the specifications will be developed in the Apache JDO project. We envision several
sub-projects to be developed as part of this project:
+
+ * JDO 1.0 API. This is the standard definition of the JDO API as defined by the JSR-12 standard.
+
+ * JDO 1.0 Reference Implementation. This is a file-based, single-user store for persistent
Java objects.
+
+ * JDO 1.0 Technology Compatibility Kit. This set of programs tests that a JDO 1.0 implementation
is in compliance with the standard.
+
+ * JDO 2.0 API. This is the standard definition of the JDO API as defined by the JSR-243
standard.
+
+ * JDO 2.0 Technology Compatibility Kit. This set of programs tests that a JDO 2.0 implementation
is in compliance with the standard.
+
+ * JDO 2.0 Geronimo Integration. This project will build the glue between the JDO 2.0 Reference
Implementation and the J2EE compliant application server. We expect to use a common persistence
framework to provide both EJB3 and JDO persistence services.
+
+Due to timing constraints, the JDO 2.0 Reference Implementation is not being built as an
Apache project, but will be built as a JPOX release http://jpox.org.
