The question comes up often. It came up in my new project in November 2011, too. I will use Java EE (JEE, and not J2EE) instead of the Spring framework in this new Enterprise Java project.
I know: Several articles, blogs and forum discussions are available regarding this topic. Why is there a need for one more? Because many blogs talk about older versions of Java EE or because they are not neutral (I hope to be neutral). And because many people still think thank EJBs are heavy! And because the time has changed: It is Java EE 6 time now, J2EE is dead. Finally! Finally, because not only JEE 6 is available, but also several application servers. I do not want to start a flame war (too many exist already), I just want to describe my personal opinion of the JEE vs. Spring „fight“…
MyBatis is a lightweight persistence framework for Java and .NET. This blog entry addresses the Java side. MyBatis is an alternative positioned somewhere between plain JDBC and ORM frameworks (e.g. EclipseLink or Hibernate). MyBatis usually uses XML, but it also supports annotations since version 3.
The documentation is very detailed for XML, but lacks of annotation examples. Just the Annotations itself are described, but no examples how to use them. I could not find any good and easy examples anywhere, so I will describe some very basic examples for SELECT, INSERT and UPDATE statements by implementing a Data Access Object (DAO) using MyBatis.
Yesterday, I visited the one-day conference “DOAG SIG Java”, because I presented about applicability and limits of Java Server Faces 2.0 (JSF 2.0). The main subject was the Java Enterprise Edition 6 (JEE 6).
The final track included a live demo of Adam Bien, a well-known JEE expert, author and speaker (also involved in the JEE specs). A very nice “live show” of the JEE 6 features!
The participants (including me) asked a lot of questions crititcally, Adam Bien always had very good answers and explanations because of his excessive experiences with Java technologies for several years.
I want to share my experiences with JRebel (http://www.zeroturnaround.com/jrebel/). If you need some neutral information about this product to ease development with J2EE / JEE applications and application servers, this blog entry is for you!
