Project: Object-relational mapping for key-value databases


Object-relational mappers (ORM) like Django allow one to interact with a database in an object-oriented manner, and provide constructs for easy deployment of web-based applications that depend on a database. The underlying database of an ORM is typically a SQL database. It is unclear how an ORM can be used together with other types of databases. In this project the feasibility of connecting an ORM with databases consisting of (possibly nested) key-value pairs is investigated. This feasibility study includes proofs-of-concept of (partial) solutions.

This project is done in cooperation with the Anet department [1] of Antwerp University.
