Subject [jira] [Commented] (GORA-341) Switch mapping file root element to use OTD instead of ORM
Date Mon, 14 Jul 2014 12:50:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GORA-341?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14060608#comment-14060608

Alfonso Nishikawa commented on GORA-341:

[~lewismc] gora-odt (object-to-datastore)

gora-otd ;)

I see now this issue. Very good point the change of name. Although it is already commited,
just share some thoughts. I usually named Gora as "Object Mapper" since was not aimed exclusively
for relational data, and after reading this issue I would call it "Object Datastore Mapper"
- ODM.

At this time, I found [this paper|http://cabibbo.dia.uniroma3.it/pub/ondm.pdf] of [Luca Cabibbo|http://scholar.google.com/citations?user=myOQbxkAAAAJ&hl=en]
talking about "Object NoSQL Datastore Mapper" and [Impetus' Kundera|https://github.com/impetus-opensource/Kundera/wiki/Object-to-NoSQl-Data-mapping]
as ODM.
I find that paper a bit incomplete since it does not name Apache Gora :(

Just I leave here my comment for - maybe some day - discussion :)

>             Project: Apache Gora

>             Fix For: 0.5
> The tutorial documentation mentions Gora as an Object-to-Datastore mapper.
> "Unlike other OTD (Object-to-Datastore) mapping implementations, in Gora ..."
> However, the mapping files provided for the tutorial use a "gora-orm" root tag. For consistency,
it would be great to have these line up.
