From the post:
This is a pretty exciting moment, the first public alpha release of a brand new project: Hibernate OGM. Hibernate OGM stands for Object Grid Mapping and its goal is to offer a full-fledged JPA engine storing data into NoSQL stores. This is a rather long blog entry so I’ve split it into distinct sections from goals to technical detail to future.
Note that I say it’s the first public alpha because the JBoss World Keynote 2011 was powered by Hibernate OGM Alpha 1. Yes it was 100% live and nothing was faked, No it did not crash 🙂 Sanne explained in more detail how we used Hibernate OGM in the demo. This blog entry is about Hibernate OGM itself and how it works.
