ORM LITE is a new, light-weight, open-source ORM tool that implements most of the ORM 2 notation. ORM LITE was created to help popularize ORM. It is open source software, so it can be shared at no cost. It is completely self contained, so it is easy to install. It is cross-platform, working on Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Unix. When users are ready to upgrade to an industrial strength tool, NORMA is recommended.

Why the ORM community will find it of interest?
Members of the ORM community would like to see a greater demand for ORM. The preview release of ORM LITE is packaged as an add-in to the GanttPV open source project scheduling tool. Because GanttPV is downloaded about 100 times per day, this strategy will put an ORM tool into the hands of 100 new project managers each day. As more project managers learn about ORM, more teams will adopt it. ORM LITE includes a brief introduction to ORM and points users to the ORM Foundation web site for more information.

ORM LITE is scriptable. It is hoped that ORM practitioners will be interested in using ORM LITE to develop and test new ORM related algorithms. For example, the preview release contains a partial implementation of Rmap (the script is included and can be modified as desired). An implementation of a UML mapping algorithm is in the works.

ORM LITE works with the GanttPV Server. This makes it easy to share models among team members. Model changes are tracked and can be shared via the server.
