Topic: An Introduction to iBATIS SQL-Maps

From the iBATIS SQL-Maps Developer Guide:

The SQL Maps framework will help you to significantly reduce the amount of Java code that you normally need to access a relational database. SQL Maps simply map JavaBeans to SQL statements using a very simple XML descriptor. Simplicity is the biggest advantage of SQL Maps over other frameworks and object relational mapping tools. To use SQL Maps you need only be familiar with JavaBeans, XML and SQL. There is very little else to learn. There is no complex scheme required to join tables or execute complex queries. Using SQL Maps you have the full power of real SQL at your fingertips.

This talk introduces SQL-Maps and demonstrates many of the features, by way of a sample application.

The talk also shows the use of DbUnit to create integration tests for database access.
