Openn source persistence framework providing object-relational mapping and remoting services.
Cayenne binds one or more database schemas directly to Java objects, managing atomic commit and rollbacks, SQL generation, joins, sequences, and more. With Cayenne's Remote Object Persistence, those Java objects can even be persisted out to clients via Web Services. Or, with native XML serialization, objects can be even further persisted to non-Java clients, such as an Ajax-capable browser.
Cayenne is distributed with CayenneModeler, a GUI mapping tool that supports reverse-engineering of RDBMS schemas, working with database mappings and generation of Java source code for the persistent objects.
Persistent Java classes are generated and synchronized with the mapping using the Modeler or alternatively with an Ant task. A database SQL schema can be generated from the Modeler and also with simple API calls.
