Presentation: "Solving the Data Access Problem with LiDO"
Monday 14:00 - 14:45, Protected Room
The Data Access problem becomes more and more critical these days as
most organizations now use Java as their main programming language while
they still access information from legacy data sources.
In one hand, object/relational mapping is well-known for years but such
solutions were fully-proprietary tools and limited to relational
databases access. On the other hand it is now generally admitted that
EJB failed to deliver the solution expected by IT teams.
The JDO standard is now widely accepted and proposes a different
perspective. Data Access is now FULLY transparent and Universal (as any
data source, not only relational databases can have a JDO
LiDO is one of the first JDO implementations that has been publicly
available, with a lot of deployed applications. LiDO enforces the
"Enterprise Information Access" vision, this means LiDO can access
various data sources (including RDBMS, ODBMS, flat files, XML files,
legacy data sources) with a primary focus on scalability and robustness.
LiDO is packaged with numerous tools and smoothly integrated with J2EE
application servers. The product has been designed with real business
needs from large organizations in mind instead of just providing yet
another abstraction layer around SQL. That said the product proposes a
lot of performance optimizations when dealing with RDBMS.
The presentation ends with few case studies showing how the product is
used by its customers.
