Currently the gora-sql module is outdated and only supports mysql database scheme. This module can be rewritten in JOOQ in such a way that it can support any Relationshional database store [2]. JOOQ is a widely used Java framework which helps to build applications where persistence requires and is highly regarded by industry specialists over Hibernate & JDBC [2]. Hibernate itself is very distant from normal sql queries and JDBC has security concerns and also too much hassle when it comes to transaction handling. JOOQ will be a very good addition to the Apache Gora project as it creates a path for Relational databases to work with apache gora seamlessly.
