Thank you for sharing your experience. I believe in a generic Spring application, you do need to change the helper classes to switch from one persistence provider to another. I am sure there are cases where you can design application so that the switch only requires minimal effort. But the article is talking about the generic picture.

I ran the article through several Spring developers I knew. They did not dispute that point. So, I guess they had more or less the same experience I had. But, I'd like to be corrected if I am overstating the problem. So, I appreciate your input.
