SDO 2.1.1 (JSR-235) Releases with EclipseLink as the Reference Implementation

I am happy to announce that SDO 2.1.1 (JSR-235) has been approved by the JCP, and EclipseLink SDO is the reference implementation.

SDO is a generic structure to represent data from many sources such as XML and relational databases, most commonly associated with SCA.

EclipseLink SDO was implemented as a thin layer on top of EclipseLink's object-to-XML layer (which is also the base for EclipseLink JAXB). EclipseLink SDO can be used alone, or as a means to expose POJOs as DataObjects so that components like EclipseLink JPA and JAXB can be used.

Thank you to all of the EclipseLink committers that contributed to the SDO component.
