Performance evaluation of Java Object-Relational Mapping tools
MetadataShow full item record
In the modern era of enterprise Web technology, there is strong competition growing between different vendors for highly scalable and reliable Web application frameworks. In designing these Web applications, the companies need some storage mechanism through which they manipulate the data efficiently. The traditional database management systems provide this functionality but require a complete knowledge of the SQL. Nowadays, there are many Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) persistent stores available, which make the application developer job easier by providing the same functionality as that of a traditional database. The Java language also provides ORM tools such as Hibernate, EclipseLink that provide the same functionality. Similarly, we have created a lightweight persistent tool named GlycoVault, which provides similar functionality. This study is focused on comparing different Java ORM tools including GlycoVault. The study provides information about the tools’ functionalities and also compares the results of several queries we have designed to test their performance.
