The Definitive Guide to Today’s Leading Persistence Technologies
Persistence in the Enterprise is a unique, up-to-date, and objective guide to building the persistence layers of enterprise applications. Drawing on their extensive experience, five leading IBM® Web development experts carefully review the issues and tradeoffs associated with persistence in large-scale, business-critical applications.
The authors offer a pragmatic, consistent comparison of each leading framework--both proprietary and open source. Writing for IT managers, architects, administrators, developers, and testers, the authors address a broad spectrum of issues, ranging from coding complexity and flexibility to scalability and licensing. In addition, they demonstrate each framework side by side, via a common example application. With their guidance, you’ll learn how to define your persistence requirements, choose the most appropriate solutions, and build systems that maximize both performance and value.
