Persistence Frameworks

pat

PAT stands for "Persistent Applications Toolkit". Like many other software it simplifies developing of persistence layers of business applications. It does it by providing object-oriented environment for persistence of your objects: POJOs And.. it really does it. PAT provides almost transparent data layer for a business application. It employs state-of-the-art techniques to achieve it. These are OO, AOP (JBossAOP), Java, Prevayler, Ant, JUnit, Log4j, @@annotations and others. It cooperates well with web applications: Struts (and possibly other web frameworks), Tomcat, JBoss AS. (AOP term: persistence aspect)

 

jaxor

Jaxor is a code-generating OR mapping tool which takes information defined in XML relating to the relational entities to be mapped and generates classes, interfaces and finder objects which can be used from any Java application (including JFC/Swing, J2EE and command-line tools). The actual code generation is handled by Velocity templates rather than by fixed mechanisms within the tool. This flexability allows easy tailoring and modification to the formatting or even the code that gets generated.

 

cayenne

Cayenne is a powerful, full-featured Java Object Relational Mapping framework. It is open source and completely free. One of the main Cayenne distinctions is that it comes with cross-platform modeling GUI tools. This places Cayenne in the league of its own, making it a very attractive choice over both closed source commerical products and traditional "edit your own XML" open source solutions.

 

jpersist

jPersist is an extremely powerful object-relational database persistence API that manages to avoid the need for configuration and annotation; mapping is automatic. It uses JDBC, and can work with any relational database and any type of connection resource. It uses information obtained from the database to handle mapping between the database and Java objects, so mapping configuration is not needed, and annotation is not needed. In fact, there is no configuration needed at all.

 

odal

ODAL is database persistence framework with emphasis on maintainability and performance. Features include query API, ORM, data validation/conversion, stored procedure support, code generation. Minimal dependencies. Short startup time.

 

smyle

Simple data storage API to help developers to focus on their applications instead of writing JDBC code.

 

apache-openjpa

It is a feature-rich implementation of the persistence part of Enterprise Java Beans 3.0, also known as the Java Persistence API (JPA), and is available under the terms of the Apache Software License. OpenJPA can be used as a stand-alone POJO persistence layer, or it can be integrated into any EJB3.0 compliant container and many lightweight frameworks.

 

jdbm

JDBM is a transactional persistence engine for Java. It aims to be for Java what GDBM is for other languages (C/C++, Python, Perl, etc.): a fast, simple persistence engine. You can use it to store a mix of objects and BLOBs, and all updates are done in a transactionally safe manner. JDBM also provides scalable data structures, such as HTree and B+Tree, to support persistence of large object collections.
