I am pleased to announce the release of ODB 1.5.0 with support for PostgreSQL.
ODB is an open-source object-relational mapping (ORM) system for C++. It allows you to persist C++ objects to a relational database without having to deal with tables, columns, or SQL and without manually writing any of the mapping code.
Major new features in this release:
* Support for the PostgreSQL database, including updates to the Boost and Qt profiles.
* Support for per-class database operations callbacks.
* New NULL handling mechanism.
* Ability to specify database default values and additional column definition options.
A more detailed discussion of the new features as well as some performance numbers for the new PostgreSQL support can be found in the following blog post:
For the complete list of new features in this version see the official release announcement:
ODB is written in portable C++ and you should be able to use it with any modern C++ compiler. In particular, we have tested this release on GNU/Linux (x86/x86-64), Windows (x86/x86-64), Mac OS X, and Solaris (x86/x86-64/SPARC) with GNU g++ 4.2.x-4.5.x, MS Visual C++ 2008 and 2010, and Sun Studio 12. The currently supported database systems are MySQL, SQLite, and PostgreSQL.
