Hibernate - Relational Persistence for Java

  •        0

Hibernate facilitated the storage and retrieval of domain objects via Object/Relational Mapping. Today, Hibernate is a collection of related projects enabling developers to utilize POJO-style domain models in their applications in ways extending well beyond Object/Relational Mapping. Hibernate lets you develop persistent classes following natural Object-oriented idioms including inheritance, polymorphism, association, composition.

It supports Oracle, DB2, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Sybase, Interbase, Microsoft SQL Server, Progress, SAP DB, and HypersonicSQL. It also provides support to do text search and Shard (horizontal partition) the database.

  • Transparent Persistence
  • High Performance
  • Reliability and Scalability
  • Extensibility: Hibernate is highly customizable and extensible.
  • Support for Hibernate Query Language (HQL)

Doctrine ORM - Object relational mapper for PHP

Object relational mapper (ORM) for PHP that sits on top of a powerful database abstraction layer (DBAL). One of its key features is the option to write database queries in a proprietary object oriented SQL dialect called Doctrine Query Language (DQL), inspired by Hibernates HQL. This provides developers with a powerful alternative to SQL that maintains flexibility without requiring unnecessary code duplication.

NHibernate - object-relational mapper for .NET

NHibernate is a mature, open source object-relational mapper for the .NET framework. NHibernate is a port of Hibernate Core for Java to the .NET Framework. It handles persisting plain .NET objects to and from an underlying relational database.

Propel - smart easy object persistance in PHP

Propel is an open-source Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) for PHP5. It allows you to access your database using a set of objects, providing a simple API for storing and retrieving data. Propel uses PDO as an abstraction layer, and code generation to remove the burden of runtime introspection. Therefore Propel is fast.

Outlet - object-to-relational mapping for PHP

Outlet differs from other orm solutions for php in that it provides transparent, unobtrusive persistence. It does not require your entity objects to implement any interfaces or extend some sort of base class. It is also very lightweight, only a handful of classes and tools.

Qcodo - Code Less Do More

The Qcodo Development Framework is an open-source PHP web application framework which builds an Object Relational Model (ORM), CRUD (Create, Retrieve, Update, Delete) UI pages, and AJAX hooks from an existing data model. It additionally includes a tightly-integrated HTML and JavaScript form toolkit which interfaces directly with the generated entities. It is a robust, comprehensive framework which can be utilized by small and large Web applications alike.

nHydrate - Conceive, Model, Generate

nHydrate is an object-relational mapping (ORM) solution for the Microsoft .NET platform providing a framework for a relational database to be mapped to .NET objects. It is designed to alleviate the software developers experience writing persistence domains. The model controls database generation, LINQ syntax, API, DAL, etc.

RedBeanPHP - Easiest ORM layer for php

RedBeanPHP is an open source ORM (object relational mapping) tool for PHP. It focuses on simplicity and ease of use. What makes RedBean unique is that it creates your database schema on-the-fly. It scans your data and adjusts the column types to fit your object properties. If your models are stabilized you can freeze the database. This way RedBean is easy to develop with but is also extremely fast on production servers.
