Prior knowledge or experience in database programming (SQL, JDBC, ORM, JPA, etc.) is not required, but some background in using the Java language is essential.
What is ObjectDB?
ObjectDB is an Object Oriented Database Management System (ODBMS). It provides all the standard database management services (storage and retrieval, transactions, lock management, query processing, etc.), but it uses an object oriented model to store and manage data. You can easily store ordinary objects (and graphs of objects) in an ObjectDB database directly.
There's no need to define tables or convert objects to records/records to objects using SQL or ORM, as opposed to when using relational database systems (RDBMS), such as Oracle, DB2, SQL Server or MySQL.
