ObjectDB and JPA

#1

Hello !!

I am new in JPA / ObjectDB development and I have many questions:

 

1. General questions

1.1. If I understood correctly, ObjectDB is an implementation of JPA standard (currently 2.0)?
1.2. Is ObjectDB on the same level like Hibernate with only difference that Hibernate stores the data in a RDBMS and ObjectDB has its own format?

 

Cheers,

V.

Yes, ObjectDB supports JPA 2.0 (except several unimplemented features - see this list).

Hibernate supports JPA + its own old API + extensions. ObjectDB supports also JDO. But in the JPA context Hibernate and ObjectDB are indeed similar, where Hiberante uses an RDBMS for storage and ObjectDB uses its own internal object database engine, and therefore is usually much faster.

No, except that db4o was also an object database, but ObjectDB was always much faster than db4o.

Please read carefully the posting instructions - before posting to the ObjectDB website.

  • You may have to disable pop up blocking in order to use the toolbar (e.g. in Chrome).
  • Use ctrl + right click to open the browser context menu in the editing area (e.g. for using a browser spell checker).
  • To insert formatted lines (e.g. Java code, stack trace) - select a style in the toolbar and then insert the text in the new created block.
  • Avoid overflow of published source code examples by breaking long lines.
  • You may mark in paragraph code words (e.g. class names) with the code style (can be applied by ctrl + D).
  • Long stack traces (> 50 lines) and complex source examples (> 100 lines) should be posted as attachments.
