Welcome to fmgVen - A Convention over Configuration Java ORM Tool

fmgVen is an alternative to heavyweight ORM tools, where mapping is not easy, and problematic because of lazy loading, etc. It maps java domain objects to database tables without explicit mapping configuration. Data access must be simple and lightweight. The points of fmgVen are;

  • Convention over Configuration
  • No Select N + 1 Problem
  • Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication
  • Lightweight
  • ORM tool should not aim to abstract out SQL knowledge
  • Performance out of the box, without having to tweak anything
  • Typed Criteria API
  • Oldest possible JRE support (1.4, 1.5)

The current release is: fmgVen 0.2 at SourceForge Go to releases page for all releases.
