databeans - a new, fully object oriented persistence framework for java

Project description

This is a new, fully object oriented persistence framework for java ; client/server, transactional, garbage collected, with persistent versions of the Collection classes, XML export/import, and security, it aims to replace (not just complement) relational db solutions.

Features

Here are the detailed features of the project:

With these capabilities, databeans aims to be a decent replacement for classical RDBMS/Application Server solutions in the enterprise, with a useability to both developpers and administrators that has nothing to do with that of the said solutions.

jlfgr-1_0.jar
sun_reflect_misc.jar

[java source files]

The most interesting part for now is the file getting_started.txt located in the docs/ directory. It will guide you through running a sample application (which is located in the sample/ directory). That done, read on the manual (below) for a complete view of the project's features.
