Subject Re: FAQ Hibernate and JDO
Date Thu, 07 Aug 2003 22:53:47 GMT
The Geronimo plugin for Hibernate as Henri said seems to be a good idea :
 - Hibernate is a great tool (just my opinion ;-))
 - Integrating 2 different persistence layer greatly help to stay 
solution agnostic.

Using Maven dependency allow the project to be Apache policy compliant 
(no hosting)
