User Reviews

  • Excellent persistence product

  • DataNucleus is a well engineered, well thought out implementation of a well engineered, well thought out Java Persistence Standard (JDO). If you like driving Mercedes, BMW or Volkswagen because they of superior design and engineering even though they aren't as popular as Toyotas or Hyundai's then you'll choose DataNucleus. If you're more of a 'herd mentality' animal then you probably won't ;)

  • Datenucleus is very powerful. Only serious option if you have any interest in using any nosql storage, object stores or column databases.
