> The idea here is to lower the barrier for entry for folks wishing to get up and running
with Gora.
> Currently when pulling Gora Maven artifacts, the confiuguration process is 'usually'
as follows
> * write your gora.properties file
> * write your .avsc which effectively determines your data and persistence model and storage
characteristics
> * generate your data store specific gora-${insert_data_store_here}-mapping.xml file
> I think it would be real nice if we could provide a data modelling tool which effectively
can run within the GoraCompiler phase of the data modelling and persistent code generation
phase of the Gora lifecycle.
> Effectively what this would require is some tool which would compliment the GoraCompiler
and would auto generate a template for your mapping file with default attributes, values,
etc.
> I think (and hope) that such a tool would enable us to lower the barrier further for
new folk wish to use Gora within their pipeline to persist data somewhere.
> On my travels, I came across Xstream [0], which (AFAIK) reads JSON and produces XML.
Maybe this could be utilized to achieve the above.
