Subject Re: Does iBatis have a direct competitor?

My experience with ORM must be quite different from yours.

I have seen some special cases where ORM might come in handy like
smaller projects where the database is only used by one application,
and would all fit into memory.

In an enterprise application on the other hand, where the database is
in the 100s of GB range and shared by multiple applications that do
not all operate within the same JVM, I have had nothing but pain with

I am aware of no reason that a rich object model would preclude the
use of iBATIS.

I've read and experimented with, I'll be content if I only have iBatis to choose from :-)
