Some initial thoughts:
* Section 1: replace NoSQL Front-End with NoSQL Back-end? :-)
* Why is this version 3.0? That's pretty arbitrary. ;) Hibernate core is in v. 4.0,
Infinispan is 5.0... maybe this should be a 1.0? Or even 0.1?
* Page 5: Why do you need a @TableGenerator? Is this to demonstrate compatibility with
Hibernate Core annotations? A table generator shouldn't be required, right?
* I believe the JTA exclusions are fixed in JBoss TS 4.15.0.Final. Will make the JTA bits
look a lot less scary.
* Maybe highlight the lines in persistence.xml that are specific to OGM? I don't
think DocBook will allow you to highlight a line in a code snippet or make it bold or
something, but perhaps an XML comment before the relevant bits? Something to the effect of
<!-- This is the only bit that is different from your usual persistence.xml -->
* Good diagrams! Looking at the storage format diagrammatically, it seems as though what
we store is a combination of actual data and indexes (in the conceptual sense) as well.
I.e., you have the ability to look up relationships directly, without doing a "table
scan". Nice. So the drawback (duplicates data) isn't really a drawback: an
RDBMS would do this too, except it would call it an index. :)
* What are the implications of this 'soft schema' approach?

I've been working on Hibernate OGM documentation. I am still very unhappy with what I
have but that's a start.
You can read it at http://docs.jboss.org/hibernate/ogm/3.0/reference/en-US/html_single/
You can contribute to it by forking on github https://github.com/hibernate/hibernate-ogm
To build the documentation,
- go to hibernate-ogm-doucumentation/manual
- run mvn install -DbuildDocs=true
You will get the result in target/docbook/publish/en-US
I'm interested in all kind of feedback:
- general feel
- what part is confusing
- what you think is missing (besides the TODOs)
And of course if you can contribute some part, that would be awesome.
