Connective provides an API for each accessing persisted
entities and their relationships. The API is designed to be
consistent and uniform and provide "good defaults" across multiple
backend storage mechanisms. More concretely, this means that
the library does not provide a way of accessing the
entities themselves. That responsibility is mostly left to the
adaptors/implementors and therefore the burden of performance
(and consistency semantics) is on the implemention.
Accordingly, the means of accessing the entities is designed to fit in
homeogenously with the current system's method of fetching data,
regardless of where the API lies in the application's layer
(e.g. jdbc, cassandra, walkable, honeysql).
In short, this library is designed to provide a uniform way to
access, store, and relate entities.
Inspiration and similar projects:
Use this library, when your solution is presenting simple and direct
relationships of entities. Do not use this if you have complex
queries (and want to harness the full capabilities of your query
language) and performance is a concern.
