I’ve received from Paolo Proni the slides that he presented at the ignite session at codemotion in Rome.
I thank Paolo and i gladly publish this short presentation that introduces the concepts behind the design of Easy Driver.
You can download the pdf from here.
What’s Codemotion ?
For four years running, Javaday Roma has been the only event of its kind in Italy in terms of content, participants and enthusiasm. Year after year, the exciting atmosphere of Javaday has . won over participants and sponsors. To keep being a top draw for developers, Javaday has evolved to become Codemotion.
Codemotion takes Javaday a giant step further: it’s open to all languages and technologies, becoming a catalyst for more creativity and more job opportunities. Everyone can reap the benefits of our new, broader focus: we’ve jumped from one product (Java, once Sun, now Oracle) to the entire field of programming.
What’s Easy Driver ?
The goal of the project is to use a small layer, which is not a complete ORM such as Hibernate or TopLink, but it is just a simple tool which let you communicate with the databases.
The idea is to generate some code, possibly in an automatic way, which reflects the table structure, so the programmer can build the queries, using the classes of the Easy Driver library.
