OR Mapping and Rules Engine

As an enterprise developer, two of my favorite server technologies are Object Relational (OR) mapping and Rules Engines. Both features simplify development efforts and facilitate better software architectures.

In the J2EE world, my preferred OR mapping solution is EJB 3.0 or Hibernate. For Rules Engines, it is ILog JRules.
Finally, Microsoft is working on baking OR and Rules into the OS.
It will be included in the new set of WinFX services.
LinQ is the intergrated query language technology that will eventually evolve into a rich OR mapping solution.
Windows Workflow Foundation (WWF) will provide the rules engine services.
I will be chatting with the dev teams of both technologies tonight and will be posting photos too.
