Western Canada Java Software Symposium
September 22 - 24, 2006 - Calgary, Alberta
iBATIS and the Enterprise Database
This presentation will focus on database challenges that object oriented developers often face in an enterprise environment. Object Relational Mapping (ORM) tools are not ideal for all databases, and therefore alternatives such as iBATIS must be sought.
Then we'll focus on using the iBATIS Data Mapper to achieve similar advantages as provided by an ORM tool, but without some of the complications that can arise from an object relational mapping approach. The iBATIS Data Mapping framework is a popular alternative to ORM tools, while being a complementary addition to any architecture.
