Tiger was released a week ago. To keep us from dwelling on the past,
Denis Mikhalkin has agreed to moderate a new forum to discuss the href="">

named Mustang. Of course, I'm kidding about "dwelling in the past" but we are so glad to have Denis write the following in today's

. "We are in the stage of
planning for the next release, 1.6.0, code-named "Mustang". We
have thousands of features to choose from, but only a small
amount of them will be implemented. Only the most important

also understand WSDL files which" describe, in XML semantics, the
interfaces and implementation objects that are used to generate
component stubs inside the container. WSDL files also define the
ports to the outside world and transport protocols through which
web services communicate."

TheServerSide has published the first in a four part series on href="">JDO
