Off to See the Wizard

Microsoft comes up with a quite elegant and well integrated language extension for relational and XML data. IBM fires back 2 years later with a wizard that auto-generates beans and Java code with embedded SQL. The article also makes assertions like:
The most popular way to objectize to programmatically access and manipulate relational data has been through special APIs and wrappers that provide one or more SQL statements written as text strings.

It does seem like it does give you some benefits when writing SQL but it's simply not LINQ.
