Lately, my attention was drawn to a product called kauklahti (sourceforge). It looks nice. But is it equipped enough ?
Currently working in a complex environment. A lot of queries, no ORM-tool is used (so it's flat programming, nothing wrong with that), and since the
system has evolved from a simple database with a number of unrelated objects to a complex database with a lot of related objects, a lot of inconsistencies arise.
I was told hibernate was not an alternative, and takes to much of hibernate-specific-steering to make it work ok.
Now this framework looks as if it's suitable for what I need. But I need to know if it's easy manageable. Does it allow for complex objects and does it allow enough control, since I can't just reorganize the database. Also performance is important.
- Does kauklahti work ok ? And is it "stable" ?
- Can complex matters be handled, and can they be handled simply or transparent, allowing enough control.
- How is the general performance. A lot of overhead or not ?
- What issues are there ?
