Kodo JPA/JDO is a JDBC-based implementation of the JPA and JDO standards for object persistence. This document is a reference for the configuration and use of Kodo JPA/JDO.

1.1. Intended Audience

This document is intended for Kodo JPA/JDO developers. It assumes strong knowledge of Java, familiarity with the eXtensible Markup Language (XML), and an understanding of JPA and JDO persistence. If you are not familiar with JPA or JDO, please read the JPA Overview and JDO Overview before proceeding. We also strongly recommend taking Kodo's hands-on tutorials to get comfortable with Kodo basics.

Certain sections of this guide cover advanced topics such as custom object-relational mapping, enterprise integration, and using Kodo with third-party tools. These sections assume prior experience with the relevant subject.
