When persisting data to your chosen datastore you would like to choose the API that is most
convenient or most familiar to you. AccessPlatform tries to make this easy so you can plug in
the API you require. We provide support for the following APIs currently.
Java Data Objects (JDO) This is a Java standard API originated in
2002 and provides a datastore-neutral API for persistence and querying of data
Java Persistence API (JPA) This is a Java standard API originated in
2006 and provides an API for persistence and querying of data in RDBMS datastores
REST This is a web-based "API" allowing use of a servlet that
accepts requests for persistence of data, using a REST like HTTP interface.
JSON This is an API that makes persistence of JSON
objects more convenient. We'll add documentation for this shortly.
