How does Websphere handle container managed persistence?  Does it use JDBC
interface with the database or does it go directly to the db via the same
used by the HLLs?

I'm very curious about this because I have a sticking point about SQL
technologies for data-entry oriented apps.  (for reporting ok, for other
that...  but let's skip that discussion for now!)

If it does use JDBC then I'd be inclined to use BMP and get at the DB with
the javatoolbox or integrate with a service program or some such.  I have
to tell
you that currently I have no real experience with WebSphere, just "book
so any and all info, suggestions and insight is most welcome.  "Native"
access to
the db is a unique difference from other platforms that, for performance
reasons, I
think would be worth exploiting.

Oh - and before I forget to mention it, there's interesing reading at

click on "Container Managed Persistence over Anything" in the "Server
chapter.   Makes me think that perhaps you could use CMP but have the
performance of
directly accessing the database.
