RedHat sued for JBoss Hibernate ORM technology

Firestar software are suing RedHat, the owner of JBoss and the Hibernate ORM technology, for infringing on it’s patent regarding Object Relational Mapping technology.

Analysts are speculating why they chose to single out RedHat, and why this point in time – ORM solutions have been around for a number of years. They could have chosen to go after Oracle for Toplink, a ORM solution they acquired from WebGain, or any one of a number of implementations of the now standardized JSR220 EJB3.0 Java Persistence API, which is based on Hibernate.
