EclipseLink 2.4 will support JPA access to NoSQL databases. This support is already part of the EclipseLink development trunk and can be tried out using the milestone or nightly builds. Initial support is provided for MongoDB and Oracle NoSQL. A plug-able platform and adapter layer allows for other databases to be supported.
I know the intentions are good, but JPA for NoSQL doesn’t make too much sense to me: object-relational mapping applied to non-relational data models.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
