ORM LITE is a light-weight, open-source ORM tool that implements most of the ORM 2 notation. New: Rmap, SQL, Sample Data. Please try out the beta release and help us to improve this new, introductory-level ORM tool.


What’s New in v0.11a?

The most important change is that sample data can now be entered for fact types. The quick start documentation has been updated to describe important keyboard short cuts. Several bugs have been fixed. To upgrade v0.11 files, run the new “Install ORM Diagram” script.


What's New?

The Rmap and SQL generation are much improved over last release. We have implemented a new Relational Tables diagram that is automatically created and updated by Rmap. The generation of names is much improved. Indices are created for most uniqueness constraints. The implementation includes table baseline and migration assistance.


The Relational Tables diagram was added because it provides a concise summary of the ORM model and because we felt that the value of ORM/Rmap would be easier to understand and demonstrate through experimentation with a visual representation.


Our Strategy

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.


By packaging ORM LITE as a GanttPV add-in, we are putting 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.


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.
