Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive a notification on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

If you encounter any issues accessing the Ideas portals, please send email describing the issue to for resolution.

Cleansing Hibernate entries from a POJO

WXS supports hibernate and OpenJPA. Every ORM implementation adds its properties to the POJOs so that it can create/maintain sessions, merge entities, etc. However clients of WXS are not necessarily hibernate/openJPA clients and should not be able to retrieve plain POJOs instead of the hibernate/openJPA modified ones.
This unwrapping of the hibernate/openJPA implementation to deliver real plain POJOs to the grid's clients is important to supporting JPA implementations and hence would be a great addition to the product.
