Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) frameworks
This is the first year we specifically asked about ORM frameworks for helping you with your data management. In the past, we’d lumped the dominant Hibernate (67.5%) into a more generic “Application Frameworks” segment, where in 2012 it was reported being used by 54% of respondents. Approximately 10% of respondents do not use this technology, so the results have been normalized.
In this semi-mature, changing market, we find plain old JDBC (22%) and Spring JdbcTemplate (19.5%), two popular flavors of more or less the same tech, taking over 40% of the market when combined. We were a bit surprised at the high level of use of EclipseLink (13%) in light of these more popular ORM frameworks, but then again it is integrated with JPA, commonly used by developers. MyBatis (6.5%) and jOOQ (1.5%) also appear on our radar as well, serving some niche audiences.
