Highlights & Low-lights in Data Access for 2007

December 21, 2007 0 Comments
Generally speaking most prominent bloggers exercise their inalienable right to post their predictions for 2007. Instead, this year I think its useful to look back on the past 12 months to review the technology and software highlights and lowlights from the perspective data access, and XML ...

First the highlights (in no particular order) ...

  • LINQ
  • Entity Framework
  • JPA 2.0
  • Astoria (Now LINQ to Data Services)
  • OpenJDK
  • XQuery reaches recommendation at the W3C !
  • Google Guice
  • JSR-310 Date and Time API
And inevitable low-lights
  • LINQ to SQL
  • Connectors 1.6
  • Closures in Java reaching analysis paralysis
  • JLINQ misbranding
