although called outdated many times already, relational database technology has survived all its supposed successors and proven to be a solid, flexible and powerful solution for storing business data. Even in times of “NoSQL” databases the advantages of an explicitly stored database schema cannot be denied.
We support our customers in integrating relational data sources into their Software. Although we have rich experience in creating objekt-relational mapping tools ourselves, nowadays we rely on ready made and proven solutions. In the java world, this is EJB 3.0 resp. JPA resp. Hibernate. For C++ our choice is the Open Source product ODB from CodeSynthesis.
