First Look at Hibernate OGM

The first public alpha release of new Hibernate project ‘Hibernate Object Grid Mapping‘ (OGM) has been annouced. Hibernate OGM is a JPA implementation, which aims to store data in a NoSQL data grid using the Hibernate Core engine. Currently, Hibernate OGM supports CRUD operations for entities, embeddable objects, entity hierarchy and optimistic locking. “Most” Hibernate native APIs and JPA APIs are also supported, alongside bi-directional associations. Currently planned for future releases are support for additional NoSQL engines, and support for complex JP-QL queries, including to-many joins and aggregation.

The code is available from GitHub.
