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.
minidb is a Python module that utilizes the SQLite3 database library in order to store and retrieve Python objects. It utilizes Python's __slots__ mechanism to determine the column names, and uses the class name for table names. Data is always stored as text in the database, but will be converted using the type specified in __slots__ (which therefore has to be a dict).
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.
RedBeanPHP is a zero-config, easy-to-use object database for PHP and an ORM tool. It works very simply. Just create bean objects and throw them at RedBean. RedBean will analyze your objects and infer a readable, comfortable data scheme from it and create all required tables and columns on the fly. RedBean is not schemaless, it makes neat tables and columns for you, but on the fly without any configuration.
ORMesque is an object relational mapper for the Dancer framework that provides a database connection to the database of your choice and automatically creates objects and accessors for that database and its tables and columns. It uses the SQL::Abstract querying syntax, and can also be used as a standalone ORM. It is a great alternative when you don't have the time, need, or desire to learn DBIx::Class.
