By Abdul Hakim, Satyam Computer Services Ltd


To Store the attributes of the Objects persistently in the database. 

Persistent Object’s Identity 

Every Persistent Object has a unique identity with which it can be accessed. There are 2 types of Object identity 

  1. Business Key
  2. GUID( Global Unique Identifier ) 

For Persistent Objects using Business key Identity please check my previous article, “Persistent Objects: Using Business Key identity” 

This article will focus only on Persistent Object using GUID.
