NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

Trial?

Through their extended use of Kotlin, our development teams have gained experience with more frameworks designed specifically for Kotlin rather than using Java frameworks with Kotlin. Although it's been around for a while, Exposed has caught our attention as a lightweight object-relational mapper (ORM). Exposed has two flavors of database access: a typesafe internal DSL wrapping SQL and an implementation of the data access object (DAO) pattern. It supports features expected from a mature ORM such as handling of many-to-many references, eager loading, and support for joins across entities. We also like that the implementation works without proxies and doesn't rely on reflection, which is certainly beneficial to performance.
