Slap Apache In The Face

Chucky Babcock (he's been around for a while now) says...

"In seeking to keep Java standardized, Sun Microsystems has turned to an open source project led by Oracle (NSDQ: ORCL) for its standard for mapping software objects into relational databases. The process of mapping is a key one to Java programmers because objects are not easily translated into relational data, the way transactions are. Instead, they must be mapped into a table of rows and columns so that both the functionality of the object and its data may be reassembled. [Ed: I love how Chucky 'gets it'.]
Sun had the option of choosing a similar project at the Apache Foundation, the OpenJPA, based on a donation of code from BEA Systems. BEA is now owned by Oracle."

I read into that article in my own special way... how do you read into it?

I'm pretty happy with Hibernate, but I have to admit, I know Gavin personally. What are your feelings with Hibernate?
