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