Easy ORM-ness with Objectify-Appengine

There are many persistence frameworks on Google App Engine. Google has its low-level datastore API, then there are standards based frameworks like JPA and there are more frameworks like Objectify-Appengine specifically for Google App Engine. Managing persistence is still a challenge. With so many options, we face the dilemma of choosing right framework for the application we are building.

Objectify-Appengine extends the convenience of NoSql by providing a Hibernate-style mapping layer between your application and GAE datastore. In this session I will cover handling persistence on Google App Engine with Objectify-Appengine. At one hand Google datastore API is low level and at the other there are standard based frameworks like JPA/JDO. Objectify-Appengine tries to hit the sweet spot between the two.

Takeaways for the Audience
Audience will see the capabilities of Objectify-Appengine and how can they leverage it to manage persistence on Google App Engine. The best practises to be followed when using Objectify, and demo of an application built on Objectify-Appengine.
