Yeah, iBATIS is a tough one to warrant more than an hour's worth of introduction. I recently dumped iBATIS.NET into the hands of one of my development teams with a SUPER tight timeline (6 weeks from vision to go-live). They wouldn't have had enought time to write all of the ADO.NET (read JDBC for what it's worth) code. I gave them one example, and they just ran with it. They figured iBATIS out as they went -- which is safe with iBATIS. Most persistence tools require you read the book first. :-)
Most questions in the iBATIS community are about "can we do this" as opposed to "how do we do this".
Anyway...there will be other opportunities.

I've just found out that my iBATIS tutorial was cancelled at ApacheCon - there were not enough enrollments to make it profitable. iBATIS is too easy to use! Maybe we should introduce some obfuscation so we can create a need for training :)So I'll not be going to ApacheCon after all. I hope those of you that are going have a great time. My only regret is that I'll not get to meet some of the other folks in our community.Jeff Butler
