Dear Vivek,

Thank you for mentioning Kundera. Currently, it looks like it only
supports Cassandra. We want Gora to implement persistency in MySQL as
well. Kundera overlaps (and outpeforms) the gora-cassandra module,
which is now a thin layer between gora-mapreduce and hector, using
Avro fields as model representing the records. See description:

For having submitted a patch in Gora-22 issue, this is what I consider
Gora is about:
1. It implements a datastore per backend (MySQL, Cassandra, HBase
...); it allows you to create a "schema", ie the columns within a new
table MySQL or column families within a new keyspace (Cassandra). You
can iterate over the entire data set to read or write row batches
serialized as lists of Avro objects. This is where part of an ORM
framework is required. Here, we can figure out better the design to
avoid duplicate efforts that writes the same features.

for the interface.

2. Gora implements Mapper and Reducer classes You can use that if you
want your Hadoop job to process data coming from the backend you
picked, without having to deal with the storage code. Gora is
currently used by Nutch crawler jobs.

Conclusion: It is just a matter of using gora-mapreduce module as an
intermediate between Hadoop and a good versatile ORM framework that
knows how to serialize/deserialize Avro fields out of any backend,
MySQL or NoSQL styles.

Let me know if this gives some insights.
