Persist is a Java-based ORM/DAO tool. It provides only the minimal amount of functionalities necessary to map objects or maps from database queries and to statement parameters. Persist works around a java.sql.Connection object. This means that it does not care about customer query languages, connection pool handling, transaction handling, and so on. This also means it is very flexible, and can be integrated with any code that depends on JDBC. Persist does not require explicit mappings from POJOs to database tables. As long as there is some sort of naming conventions that relate database names with POJO names, Persist will require virtually no mappings. It can, however, be instructed to map Java classes and fields to database tables and columns using annotations. Persist supports several different mapping strategies: POJOs mapped to tables By default, if no annotations specify a given class should not be mapped to a table, Persist will try to find a table that matches that class and create a mapping between fields and columns. POJOs not mapped to tables
