In the first of a three-part series, Java developer David Currie introduces some Java™ 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) Connector Architecture (JCA) 1.5 optimizations that should make your existing or new outbound resource adapters go faster. He also takes a look at some additions that let resource adapters take on a new life of their own. This series is essential if you want to improve the performance of -- or add new functionality to -- existing resource adapters or are considering writing a new JCA 1.5 resource adapter. It should also be of interest if you write applications that use resource adapters and want to know a little more about what goes on behind the scenes.
