I am the founder and head of R&D at Data Geekery GmbH, the company behind the jOOQ and jOOX projects.

jOOQ effectively combines complex SQL, typesafety, source code generation, active records, stored procedures, advanced data types, and Java in a fluent, intuitive DSL.

jOOX is the jquery of Java: A simple wrapper for the org.w3c.dom package, to allow for fluent XML document creation and manipulation where DOM is required but too verbose

comment Are NoSQL databases going to take the place of relational databases? Is SQL going away?
What will happen is that all fancy and useful new features are going to be integrated into the SQL language, which isn't strictly about relational databases. SQL has already integrated OLAP (star schema) and can deal with column stores ("NewSQL"). So, while NoSQL is often referred to as meaning "Not Only SQL", it will really evolve into "No, SQL" ;-)

revised When would someone use MongoDB (or similar) over traditional RDMS?
Removed dead link. Remaining links are still useful.

comment why are noSQL databases more scalable than SQL?
While I agree that some NoSQL stores replace ACID with BASE, that still isn't a common feature for all stores that fall under the NoSQL "category", which is an ill-defined in the first place. After a while, the interpretation of the term switched from "No SQL" to "Not Only SQL", but as many such databases still do JOINs or have started implementing SQLesque dialects, Mark Madsen has re-coined the term to mean something else in his history of databases in no-tation: "No, SQL" ;-)

comment Are there guidelines on how many parameters a function should accept?
I agree, a context object can turn out to be very handy when function parameter structures start becoming rather complex. I had recently blogged about using context objects with a visitor-like pattern
