Subject Re: Content Object Mapping - jcrom.org

We've been using the OCM libraries with a certain amount of success.  
We have heavily leveraged using the spring modules for configuration  
and have used the repository pattern with a few base classes which  
handle most of the OCM specific implementations. Our domain model maps  
fairly cleanly into trees and nested structures, as I suspect many  
models would, and we have done some amount of data normalization.

Adding JPA support to the OCM code would be a nice benefit for those  
that have existing models, I'll grab the api docs and some sample code  
and take a look at how big a change it would be. At first glance we  
would have to provide a few implementations, but I think we have most  
of the pieces they just need to be assembled. I have been working on  
the entity factory with a second level cache, but got pulled away due  
to "real" work stuff ;-)

In general, I feel that having two ocm style projects for such a small  
group is detrimental, perhaps we could convince the jcrom folks to  
come over to apache?
