We are about to release our first product using ObjectDB (as a small embedded store), and soon hope to release a much larger product using ObjectDB (will need an OEM license). What really interests us is JDO. We have been using JDO for over a decade and have found it consistently a far better API than JPA, as all kinds of features that are optional or require special extensions in JPA products, (such as large query optimisation, storage of collections of non-entities and automated management of identity) are built-in to JDO. We have recently migrated projects for JPA to ObjectDB JDO because of this, and intend to continue to use JDO in future projects and to promote its use. We consider it significant that Spring continues to support and update its JDO capabilities.
Bearing this in mind, we would be interested to know if it is likely that ObjectDB will support new and future JDO versions: http://db.apache.org/jdo/specifications.html ?
