ActiveJDBC is a Java implementation of the Active Record design pattern developed by Igor Polevoy. It was inspired by ActiveRecord ORM from Ruby on Rails. It is based on a set of conventions and does not require configuration.
Creating and updating records
Creation of and saving new records in a table:
Employee e = new Employee(); e.set("first_name", "John"); e.set("last_name", "Doe"); e.saveIt();
or the same on one line:
Employee.createIt("first_name", "John", "last_name", "Doe");
And for updating an existing record:
Employee e = Employee.findFirst("first_name = ?", "John"); e.set("last_name", "Steinbeck").saveIt();
ActiveJDBC does not have a query language. Search criteria are written in abbreviated SQL.
List<Employee> employees = Employee.where("first_name = ?", "John");
While ActiveJDBC is a general purpose Java ORM, it served as a first building block for ActiveWeb
