What are the features/limitations of Container Managed Persistnce with Weblogic 5.x. Are there any recommendations when using it?

  • You can't specifiy storage of objects. For instance, Oracle 8i does support storage of objects, i.e Blobs and Clobs.
  • You are limited to the String objects and a few other primitive types. (For storage of arrays of values, you may need to find a work around. )
  • An Entity Bean can only map to one table, if more complex joins are required, you may require a more complex persistence manager( such as CocoBase or TopLink)
