Microsoft showed off their Developer Tools Roadmap 2003-2005. There are lots of things to look through, but I find it interesting that ObjectSpaces has now been choosen for addition (ADO.NET). If you go to the ObjectSpaces home page you will see that this isn’t brand new technology, so what made them decide to add it now?
Also, since this tech is basically transparent persistence, will this push JDO in the Java world? I hope so.
