subPersistence is an abstract, light-weight, yet flexible framework for working with O/R persistence mappers.
While you can use Hibernate or Castor (or other O/R mappers) directly, coupling your application too tightly to those can be a bad thing. subPersistence makes it easy to switch underlying O/R mappers, thereby decoupling the application layer from those.
It abstracts away differences between the mappers, while still making it possible to use their specific features if needed.
What's New in This Release:
· This version updates to Java 5 features such as Generics and is the first version to require Hibernate 3.
