Design Specification: Support NoSQL Databases
|Date||Author||Version Description & Notes|
There are several "NoSQL" databases that are non-relational. These databases include:
- Oracle NoSQL
- Google BigTable
These databases offer alternative APIs to JDBC and either do not support querying, or support alternative query languages to SQL.
You could also include legacy hierarchical and non-relational databases, object databases and XML databases in the "NoSQL" category.
EclipseLink currently provides persistence support for relational databases through JDBC, and non-relational datasources through JCA.
It is desirable for EclipseLink to support persistence and specifically JPA access to NoSQL databases.
Need to document our BNF, example queries and support beyond JPA 2.0/2.1 in query section.
