First, iBATIS is not an ORM tool, it is a SQL mapping tool. While that
may not seem like a big difference, it is. ORM tools write your SQL
for you. iBATIS uses your SQL and maps input and output to POJOs. That
means that you can use the full power of your database (or at least
99% of it), not just what your ORM understands.

As far as clustering goes, it should be OK, but you may need to look
into using OSCache for caching...

It has a fairly simple caching mechanism, with plug-ins for external
caching, and an API to roll your own if they don't fit your needs.

If it's Java-based (heck, or even .net), iBATIS will work. :-)

You are welcome. :)
