Well you've pretty much described what I like about Warp in your
It would be fantastic if both persistence layers could combine or at
least mirror each other somehow, we'll see what Dhanjii thinks. I
think there would need to be both Spring and Guice DI implementations
though (Spring for wide audience and Guice for fun).
The webapp layers for Warp and Parancoe are definitely different, but
I'm mostly interested in the persistence layer at the moment and they
are quite a few similarities. I personally don't care too much about
the CRUD method naming, everyone seems to have their own preference.
Parancoe is further along with the abstraction, having both CRUD and
true dynamic finder methods is amazing (not even having to use named
queries). Whereas Warp is pretty simple from a configuration
perspective due to Guice DI. Both projects complement each other.
Here is the thread I posted on the warp board yesterday, which
describes what I think would be a very popular DAO layer:
