Noticing an important gap in Google’s Android development platform offering, Software Tree, LLC has stepped forward with the introduction of JDXA 1.0, a simple, non-intrusive, and flexible ORM (Object Relational Mapping) solution to help mobile app developers be more productive. Based on some well thought-out KISS principles, JDXA increases developer productivity tremendously by presenting a more intuitive object-oriented view of on-device relational data and eliminating the need to write and maintain endless lines of complex low-level SQL code.
Integration with relational data is a common need for most applications, but mixing Java with SQL is a difficult task. Developers not only have to bridge the conceptual gap between the object-oriented and relational paradigms, but also have to learn to mix two different languages. ORM has become the preferred and most popular paradigm to access relational data from object-oriented applications. Software Tree specializes in ORM technology, having already produced market-proven ORM products for the Java and .NET platforms. JDXA provides a powerful and easy-to-use ORM functionality in a small footprint, resulting in the following benefits:
- Improved developer productivity
- Fewer maintenance hassles and associated costs
- Reduced development risks
- Apps that are flexible and easier to evolve, giving developers a competitive advantage
- Accelerated time-to-market and revenue
- Higher customer satisfaction
“I have evaluated JDXA ORM for Android and am very impressed by the product’s powerful features, performance, and simplicity,” says Surojit Pakira, a senior Android application developer.
“Software Tree has been a pioneer in the field of modern ORM,” says Damodar Periwal, founder of Software Tree. “While Apple and Microsoft provide ORM frameworks as part of their mobile application development platforms, Google’s Android platform lacks this important facility. After carefully evaluating the features of the Android platform and understanding the needs of its developers, we have meticulously adapted and enhanced our patented (US Patent 6,163,776) ORM technology for this increasingly popular mobile platform. It gives us great pleasure to announce JDXA ORM, an innovative and practical solution to simplify and accelerate the development of Android apps.”
