we think our Empire-db could be a great extension to the ASF project list as it works considerably
different in many ways. Most of all Empire-db uses a Java Object Model rather than XML-Mappings
or Annotations to describe the database schema. Therefore all Tables, Views, Columns and so
on are Objects which can be referenced from the code to dynamically build SQL commands or
to access Data model metadata - entirely without the need to provide string literals. This
in turn significantly increases compile-time-safety and simplifies testing and maintenance.
Additionally uses benefit from the IDE's code completion when building column transformation
expressions or constraints.
