Subject Re: [SCAFFOLD] StorageBeanBase feature request

I'm not using the SQL parts of Scaffold in new development. For new 
development, I'm now using Hiberate.

I'm away next week, but later this month, I'll apply some outstanding 
patches to Scaffold, and look at providing a direct alternative to the 
SQL package using either Commons SQL/Dynabeans, the new Mapping package 
in the Jakarta Commons sandbox, or Ibatis. There are just too many other 
likely alternatives now to keep this package alive.

Of course, you can always check-out the code yourself and use as part of 
in-house development.

The Access paradigm is not strongly linked to the StorageBeans. 
Essentially, it's just a facade, and you could use anything you like 
behind the facade. (Say Hibernate, for example.)
