-The Apache Software Foundation Announces Apache™ Cayenne™ v3.1
-
 The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators
of more than 200 Open Source projects and initiatives, announced today the availability of
Apache™ Cayenne™ v3.1, the Open Source Java framework for object relational mapping
(ORM), persistence, and caching.
 
 "With the launch of version 3.1, Apache Cayenne has continued to evolve its mature 12 year-old
library by introducing 125 new features," said Andrus Adamchik, Vice President of Apache Cayenne.

 Apache Cayenne v3.1 is the result of 4 years of development. Notable new features and improvements
include:
 
-    * easier configuration and embedding in any type of application;
-    * highly configurable runtime, enabled by one of the industry's smallest built-in Dependency
Injection (DI) containers written specifically for Cayenne (and that co-exists with other
DI/IoC, such as Apache Tapestry). It is also very easy to create more than one runtime, which
opens interesting possibilities like multi-tenancy;
-    * nearly all components now pluggable, making it very easy to create more than one runtime
and easily change or extend internals of the stack declaratively --from cache provider to
SQL log format to DataSource lookup strategy and much more;
-    * improved ORM modularity to allow  projects to be included in libraries without assumptions
about the target use. Different aspects of an application can now be modeled in separate mapping
projects and combined in runtime as needed. As a result Cayenne projects can be included in
libraries that make no assumptions about the target use;
-    * extended persistent events model from simple per-object events to more higher-level
"workflows" that can be configured with app-specific annotations on persistent classes. Cayenne
ships with "cayenne-lifecycle" module that provides a few common examples of such workflows
activated on data changes: data modifications audit, precision cache invalidation, etc.; and
-    performance optimizations for improved overall concurrency

 "Developers who are seeking an alternate to EJB/Hibernate might find Cayenne's graphical
modeler, reverse database engineering, easy to use query API and flexible context model a
joy to work with," said Aristedes Maniatis, member of the Apache Cayenne Project Management
Committee and CEO of ish.

 "We use Apache Cayenne as the ORM for a large and complex budgeting project for around twenty
government organizations," said Daniel Abrams, CEO of MassLight. "Cayenne is used to access
and persist exhibit data, business validation rules, and account information, and has simplified
the development process. A single Cayenne method call evaluates all changes in the user's
context and generates all statements required to commit their changes within a single transaction
without the developer having to write code to track the changes -- Cayenne does all the work.
Since switching to Cayenne, there haven't been any faulting errors that tended to plague the
previous version of the application because of the complex data model. This was one of the
principal reasons for the switch to Cayenne and the data model has become significantly more
complex now."
 
 "We use Cayenne in our system to collect, quality control and distribute world coverage nautical
charts to navies, pilots, inspectors and several thousand vessels," said Tore Halset, Development
Manager at Electronic Chart Centre and PRIMAR. "We have been happy users of Apache Cayenne
since 2005 and are now on version 3.1."
