Improving Application Performance with JDBC

Most application performance problems are due to inefficient data access. Existing solutions have pros and cons: A Networking proxy? Grid cache? ORM? Middleware? We will discuss these solutions, and an alternative way through JDBC (i.e. the data access layer). The JDBC solution provides the Java developer 1) granular performance visibility, 2) SQL caching, 3) automated HA failover and 4) security. It will be a great time of sharing amongst the group.
