pdoMap is a robust PHP ORM with many OOP features. The mapping structure, requests, and transactions are defined in XML files. The core directly generates PHP classes for high performance. It is very easy to use and configure. It features fully optimized code, caching data, a full lazy loading system, and an open system for extending all functionality.
NORM is a simple ORM for PHP. It works with PDO and MySQL. Unlike other ORMs, NORM is neither complicated, convoluted, nor daunting. You can easily throw a regular object at NORM, tie in a couple other objects to relate to it, store it in a database, and return it as a regular associative array or regular object that you can toss into JSON output or a template. It lets you create and store your objects without worrying about SQL, since NORM takes care of building and managing database tables.
Athena Framework for Java is a full fledged enterprise object-relational mapping (ORM) framework that employs metadata as mapping configuration. It greatly simplifies Java Web application development by removing the requirement of manual mapping and manual database schema updating. In addition to features like Java object persistence, powerful EJBQL querying execution, and comprehensive code generation, Athena has built-in support for multi-tenancy, which enables developers to build cloud applications easily. Athena can be easily integrated with other libraries like Struts or Spring to provide full stacks of service.
