Does WebSphere have, or will it have in the future, a feature called "field groups"? I do know that WebLogic has this feature. What about other application servers? Will this be a standard in the near future?
For those that don't know what I'm talking about, "field groups" is about grouping related entity bean fields together so that the container doesn't have to load all the columns every time it loads the bean from the database. It's for optimization and I would love to see it become a standard. I think features such as this are a must for the survival of entity beans.
