Nice summary thanks Ted.  

I chose to go with Hibernate for my project (which fits the ORM category above perfectly)
and am very happy with it so far.  Relatively short learning curve (even for a Java/Struts
newbie like me).  After slugging it out with log4j, and the Struts validator, it was a piece
of cake to implement.

I am only doing simple stuff with it at the moment, but have no complaints (just wish that
it had been around 8 years ago!).
