JOhm

JOhm is a blazingly fast Object-Hash Mapping library for Java inspired by the awesome Ohm. The JOhm OHM is a modern-day avatar of the old ORM's like Hibernate with the difference being that we are not dealing with an RDBMS here but with a NoSQL rockstar.

JOhm is a library for storing objects in Redis, a persistent key-value database. JOhm is designed to be minimally-invasive and relies wholly on reflection aided by annotation hooks for persistence. The fundamental idea is to allow large existing codebases to easily plug into Redis without the need to extend framework base classes or provide excessive configuration metadata.

Durable data storage is available via the Redis Append-only file (AOF). The default persistence strategy is Snapshotting.

What can I do with JOhm?

JOhm is still in active development. The following features are currently available:

  • Basic attribute persistence (String, Integer, etc...)
  • Auto-numeric Ids
  • References
  • Arrays
  • Indexes
  • Deletion
  • List, Set, SortedSet and Map relationship
  • Search on attributes, arrays, collections and references

Stay close! It is growing pretty fast!

How do I use it?

You can download the latest build at http://github.com/xetorthio/johm/downloads

And this is a small example (getters and setters are not included for the sake of simplicity):

@Model
class User {
    @Id
    private Long id;
    @Attribute
    private String name;
    @Attribute
    @Indexed
    private int age;
    @Reference
    @Indexed
    private Country country;
    @CollectionList(of = Comment.class)
    @Indexed
    private List<Comment> comments;
    @CollectionSet(of = Item.class)
    @Indexed
    private Set<Item> purchases;
    @CollectionMap(key = Integer.class, value = Item.class)
    @Indexed
    private Map<Integer, Item> favoritePurchases;
    @CollectionSortedSet(of = Item.class, by = "price")
    @Indexed
    private Set<Item> orderedPurchases;
    @Array(of = Item.class, length = 3)
    @Indexed
    private Item[] threeLatestPurchases;
}

@Model
class Comment {
    @Id
    private Long id;
    @Attribute
    private String text;
}

@Model
class Item {
    @Id
    private Long id;
    @Attribute
    private String name;
}

Initiating JOhm: jedisPool = new JedisPool(new Config(), "localhost"); JOhm.setPool(jedisPool);

Creating a User and persisting it:

User someOne = new User();
someOne.setName("Someone");
someOne.setAge(30);
JOhm.save(someOne);

Loading a persisted User:

User storedUser = JOhm.get(User.class, 1);

Deleting a User:

JOhm.delete(User.class, 1);

Search for all users of age 30:

List<User> users = JOhm.find(User.class, "age", "30");

Model with a reference:

User someOne = new User();
...
JOhm.save(someOne);

Country someCountry = new Country();
...
JOhm.save(country);

someOne.setCountry(someCountry);

Model with a list of nested models:

User someOne = new User();
...
JOhm.save(someOne);

Comment aComment = new Comment();
...
JOhm.save(aComment);

someOne.getComments.add(aComment);

Model with a set of nested models:

User someOne = new User();
...
JOhm.save(someOne);

Item anItem = new Item();
...
JOhm.save(anItem);

someOne.getPurchases.add(anItem);

For more usage examples check the tests.

And you are done!
