This article describes how Java developers can employ federated database management technology to expand the reach of the server-side components they build. Techniques discussed illustrate how Java developers can transparently work with multiple data sources without installing a variety of client software, establishing direct connections to these data sources, or possessing detailed knowledge about the differences between these data sources. With federated database technology, Java developers can create components that join or union data from multiple sources, including container-managed entity Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs).
