This section provides basic architectures for providing persistence with the J2EE application server platform. The J2EE platform requires a database for the storage of business data. This database is accessible through the JDBC, SQLJ, or JDO APIs. Also, the database is accessible from web components, enterprise beans, and application client components. For more information on the J2EE platform, see the Application Server Definition.
Here are some basic architectures for accessing databases:
- Using JDBC with Application Servers
- Using SQLJ with Application Servers
- Using JDO with Application Servers
- Using EJB Accelerators with Application Servers

This book covers both issues. Managers at all levels of all organizations must be aware of both the changes that we are now seeing and ways to deal with issues created by those changes.
