Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2005
Software Tree has introduced today the NJDX 1.0 Object-Relational Mapper (OR-Mapper), which dramatically reduces the complexity of developing modern object-oriented applications on the .NET platform by eliminating the painful need to write huge amounts of complicated infrastructure code for data integration.
Adhering to some well thought-out KISS (Keep It Simple and Straightforward) principles, NJDX provides smooth integration with popular databases including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, IBM DB2, and Microsoft Access. NJDX has also been tightly integrated with Visual Studio .NET and can be used with any CLR-based language including C#, VB.NET, and J#.
NJDX provides a high-performance, user-friendly, and practical OR-Mapping solution for seamlessly bridging the gap between the .NET object model and SQL relational model. By eliminating endless lines of tedious ADO.NET/OleDB/SQL code, NJDX boosts developer productivity and reduces maintenance hassles.
The KISS principles that have served as the guiding philosophy behind development of NJDX include:
- Solve the most important problem in the simplest possible way
- Don’t make the solution more complex than the original problem
- Be completely non-intrusive to the object model
- Make it easy to define, modify, comprehend, and share the mapping specification
- Avoid source code generation for data access
- No mind reading
- Expose small number of simple and consistent APIs
- Optimize data access logic automatically
- Keep the internal implementation simple, extensible, and efficient
- Offer intuitive tools to deal with object models, database schema, and mapping
- Provide a straightforward installer, lucid documentation, and readymade examples
“NJDX is an amazingly simple and intuitive OR-Mapper,” says Bill Ryan, a Microsoft MVP (Most Valuable Professional). “I'm extremely impressed with just about every facet of it. NJDX is powerful, flexible, easy-to-use, performant, reliable, and most importantly, it fits seamlessly into any architectural model.”
“Software Tree has been a pioneer in the field of Object-Relational Mapping technology,” comments Damodar Periwal, President & CEO of Software Tree. “In March 1998, we released JDX™, our innovative and patented OR-Mapping product for the Java platform. .NET developers have long been clamoring for a fast, flexible, and practical OR-Mapping solution. We are delighted to present NJDX, the KISS OR-Mapper for .NET, to help those developers with a versatile and efficient data integration product. Software Tree now has a unique set of lightweight OR-Mapping products (JDX and NJDX), which share a common proven architecture and present similar interfaces for both the Java and the .NET worlds.”
