Yeah, I have missed this earlier...
Why is there so much focus on JDO in J2EE? After all, the biggest supporters 
of JDO are we, who don't like, don't want or can not use J2EE.

I doubt that EJB3 will be anywhere close to useful in smaller sized 
applications. EJB has traditionally been mixing "concern spaces" like few 
others, and I have very little faith that the EJB3 Persistence API will be 
anywhere near useful, especially in constrained devices.

And when is the spec scheduled to be released?

Phew... Incredibly interesting line of argumentation that the "No voters" 
give; Basically "It is more than you are allowed to do." Are they worried 
that by the time EJB3 hits the streets it is totally outdate, and JDO3 will 
be around the corner with even better goddies.

Honestly, your 'comment' is really nice, but don't forget commercial companies 
don't really like market forces...
