ColdBox ORM Extensions for Hibernate

The cborm module is a module that will enhance your experience when working with the ColdFusion ORM powered by Hibernate. It will not only enhance it with dynamic goodness but give you a fluent and human approach to working with Hibernate. Basically making working with Hibernate not SUCK!

Some Features

  • Service Layers with all the methods you could probably think off to help you get started in any project

  • Virtual service layers so you can create virtual services for any entity in your application

  • Automatic RESTFul resources handler, focus on your domain objects and business logic, not the boilerplate of REST

  • ActiveEntity our implementation of Active Record for ORM

  • Fluent queries via Hibernate's criteria and detached criteria queries with some Dynamic CFML goodness

  • Automatic transaction demarcation for save and delete operations

  • Dynamic finders and counters for expressive and fluent shorthand SQL

  • Automatic Java casting

  • Entity population from json, structs, xml, and queryies including building up their relationships

  • Entity validation via cbValidation

  • Includes the Mementifier project to produce memento states from any entity, great for producing JSON

  • Ability for finders and queries to be returned as Java streams using our cbStreams project.

# A quick preview of some functionality

var book = new Book().findByTitle( "My Awesome Book" );
var book = new Book().getOrFail( 2 );
new Book().getOrFail( 4 ).delete();
new Book().deleteWhere( isActive:false, isPublished:false );

property name="userService" inject="entityService:User";

return userService.list();
return userService.list( asStream=true );

var count = userService.countWhere( age:20, isActive:true );
var users = userService.findAllByLastLoginBetween( "01/01/2019", "05/01/2019" );

    .eq( "name", "luis" )
    .isTrue( "isActive" )

    .isTrue( "isActive" )
    .joinTo( "role" )
        .eq( "name", "admin" )

    .withProjections( property="id,fname:firstName,lname:lastName,age" )
    .isTrue( "isActive" )
    .joinTo( "role" )
        .eq( "name", "admin" )

In other words, it makes using an ORM not SUCK!
