Datastore Feature Support

Whilst we aim to ultimately support all API features on all supported datastores, this isn't currently possible. See below for a summary of what feature is supported on which datastore. Click on the datastore name in the column header to select it .

[1] represents partial implementation.

[2] - when a collection/map/array is "backed" it can put individual elements in the datastore at once rather than writing everything, and additionally can control how the elements are retrieved

[3] represents partial implementation.

[4] means that datastore doesn't explicitly support inheritance but "complete-table" is the nearest to what happens.

[5] means partially evaluated in datastore and remains evaluated in memory.

[6] means supports some SQL syntax.
