Subject Re: ORM EntityStore

I assume that you are referring to (from sample project)


public static Person findPersonNamed(String firstName, String lastName)
{
    Operation findByFirstNameAndLastName =
        PersonFinder.firstName().eq(firstName)
                    .and(PersonFinder.lastName().eq(lastName));
    return PersonFinder.findOne(findByFirstNameAndLastName);
}

which on paper is somewhat similar.

However, there seems to be rather large hurdles;

  1. They start with an app model in XML
  2. They generate source code from that XML in build time, and quite a bit
of it [1].
  3. The PersonFinder has "Polygene naming", and it is a class that is
regenerated on every build.
  4. Person is a one-time generated class, extending a every time generated
AbstractPerson that follows "getter/setter naming".
  5. Static methods... why?
  6. It seems that transactions are wrapped in a single method, and that
doesn't fit the UnitOfWork workflow [2]
  7. A lot of the generated stuff is about providing a query interface.

The codebase is non-trivial, I give them that. And it might be a lot better
than JPA, I mean it is hard not to be worse.

Now, using it out of the box is probably impossible, and I don't think it
is possible to make this generic enough to be able to leverage Polygene
models, so the alternative would be to fork it and massage it into what we
would need. More effort than _I_ care to go for...
