Subject [jxpath] OJB and JXPath was: Re: Commons - TLP
Date Sun, 21 Dec 2003 20:39:17 GMT
Speaking of JXPath and OJB integration... one thing that has been 
brought up a couple times is an XPath style query engine for OJB. I 
would love to see this happen, and the process of doing it for OJB 1.1 
will help to make sure that the OTM API is as flexible as we 
want^H^H^H^H need it to be for implementing other things on top of it.

Unfortunately, I don't think any of us have really strong 
(implementation level)  XPath expertise... any JXPath'ers interested in 
helping with some O/R stuff?
