Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "MetaModelProposal" by KasperSorensen
Date Wed, 06 Mar 2013 08:13:05 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "MetaModelProposal" page has been changed by KasperSorensen:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/MetaModelProposal?action=diff&rev1=3&rev2=4

  
  == Proposal ==
  
- MetaModel provides a uniform meta-model for exploring and querying the structure of datastores,
covering but not limited to relational databases. The scope of the project is to stay domain-agnostic,
so the meta-model will be concerned with schemas, tables, columns, rows, relationships etc.
+ MetaModel provides a uniform meta-model for exploring and querying the structure of datastores,
covering but not limited to relational databases, various data file formats, NoSQL databases,
Salesforce.com, SugarCRM and more. The scope of the project is to stay domain-agnostic, so
the meta-model will be concerned with schemas, tables, columns, rows, relationships etc.
  
  On top of this meta-model a rich querying API is provided which resembles SQL, but built
using compiler-checked Java language constructs. For datastores that do not have a native
SQL-compatible query engine, the MetaModel project also includes an abstract Java-based query
engine implementation which individual datastore-modules can adapt to fit the concrete datastore.

  === Initial goals ===
  
- MetaModel is already a stable project, so initial goals are more oriented towards an adaption
to the Apache ecosystem than about functional changes. We are constantly adding more datastore
types to the portfolio (currently a Salesforce.com web service and a SugarCRM consumer datastore
is being tested), but the core modules have not had drastic changes for some time. Our focus
will be on making ties with other Apache projects (such as POI, Gora and CouchDB) and potentially
renaming the ‘MetaModel’ project to something more rememberable.
