PhpPeanuts is a framework for developing database-backed applications in PHP. Rather than building an application from the bottom up, you initially only build domain model classes in which you specify properties, relationships, and database table names in metadata. The framework dynamically scaffolds getters and setters, persistency, navigation over relations, and input and delete validation. The abstract user interface instantly offers a rich set of pages for searching, browsing, drilling down, editing and reporting over your domain model. From there on you extend and refine both the domain model and the user interface to make it what you want by defining specialization classes and overriding inherited methods.
Hibernate Spatial is an extension to the Hibernate Java ORM library for handling geographic data. Hibernate Spatial allows you to deal with geographic data in a standardized way. It abstracts away from the specific way your database supports geographic data, and provides a standardized, cross-database interface to geographic data storage and query functions. Hibernate Spatial supports most of the functions of the OGC Simple Feature Specification. Currently, Oracle 10g/11g, Postgresql/Postgis, MySQL, and MS SQL Server 2008 are supported.
DataNucleus AccessPlatform is a standards-compliant Java persistence product. It is fully compliant with the JDO1, JDO2, JDO2.1, JDO2.2, JDO3, JPA1, and JPA2 Java standards, and provides a REST API. It complies with the OGC Simple Feature Spec for persistence of geospatial Java types. It allows access to all popular RDBMS available today, together with the MongoDB, LDAP, NeoDatis, JSON, Excel/ODF spreadsheets, XML, BigTable, HBase, and Neo4j databases.
Butterfly Persistence is a simple, no nonsense Java persistence API. It aims to provide a simple relational persistence API. Its features include automatic/manual connection management, easier JDBC operations via JDBC templates (Spring style), simple object relational mapping, and map reading for dynamic queries. It provides a simple and pragmatic approach to persistence and will either help you, or get out of the way and let you do the job manually.
PersistClass provides access to relational databases for PHP. It attempts to focus on simplicity and convenience by eliminating the need for boilerplate, meaningless code. It can establish database connections (MySQL, Oracle, etc.), execute SQL queries, parse query results, provide convenience methods (read a single row or value, etc.), escape data (against SQL injection, HTML escaping for outputs), handle transactions, and provide strict error handling and object persistence (storing and retrieving PHP objects in db tables).
Ujorm is an easy-to-use ORM framework based on key-value objects. The framework was designed for rapid Java development with great performance and a small footprint. The key features are type safe queries, relation mapping by Java code, no entity states, and a memory overloading protection cache.
DBIx-Class is an SQL to OO mapper with an object API inspired by Class::DBI (with a compatibility layer as a springboard for porting) and a resultset API that allows abstract encapsulation of database operations. It aims to make representing queries in your code as Perl-ish as possible while still providing access to as many of the capabilities of the database as possible, including retrieving related records from multiple tables in a single query.
