  • Skill IQ available Skill IQ

Spring Data provides a familiar and consistent, Spring-based programming model for data access while still retaining the special traits of the underlying data store.

It makes it easy to use data access technologies, relational and non-relational databases, map-reduce frameworks, and cloud-based data services. This is an umbrella project which contains many subprojects that are specific to a given database. The projects are developed by working together with many of the companies and developers that are behind these exciting technologies.

These features include: Powerful repository and custom object-mapping abstractions Dynamic query derivation from repository method names Implementation domain base classes providing basic properties Support for transparent auditing (created, last changed) Possibility to integrate custom repository code Easy Spring integration via JavaConfig and custom XML namespaces Advanced integration with Spring MVC controllers Experimental support for cross-store persistence
