The idea behind Kundera is to make working with NoSQL Databases drop-dead simple and fun. Kundera is being developed with following objectives:
- To make working with NoSQL as simple as working with SQL
- To serve as JPA Compliant mapping solution for NoSQL Datastores.
- To help developers, forget the complexity of NoSQL stores and focus on Domain Model.
- To make switching across data-stores as easy as changing a configuration.
If you have worked upon Hibernate or any JPA Compliant ORM Solution, then the whole process, right from learning to coming up with first sample implementation will not take more than 5 minutes. Please follow wiki pages in following sequence:
