See how JBoss is leveraging its existing technology to build an OGM (Object/Grid Mapper). Hibernate Core (JPA), Hibernate Search (object search engine), Teiid (query federation engine) and of course Infinispan (distributed data grid) are the foundation to this adventure. We will cover in details how the various bricks fit together, what the secret sauce is and how to use the solution in your applications.
PaaS (Platform as a Service) is all the buzz these days. But how and where do you store your data is the real challenge. In a data grid to benefit from its scalability? Via a new proprietary API? JBoss users of our enterprise middleware systems are accustomed to easy persistence via Hibernate and JPA (Java Persistence API). What if Hibernate could store your data in a grid? Hibernate Object/Grid Mapper (OGM) aims at offering a JPA front end (object manipulation and JP-QL query) to applications while storing and querying the data from a key/value grid like Infinispan. In other words, offering a familiar and well known API but benefiting from the new scalability possibilities of distributed data grids like Infinispan. That includes trying to support existing applications using JPA.
