Sql2o is a small java library, with the purpose of making database interaction easy. When fetching data from the database, the ResultSet will automatically be filled into your POJO objects. Kind of like an ORM, but without the SQL generation capabilities. Sql2o requires at Java 7 or 8 to run. Java versions past 8 may work, but is currently not supported.
Check out the sql2o website for examples.
A key feature of sql2o is performance. The following metrics were based off the Dapper.NET metrics. Note that typical usage can differ from optimal usage for many frameworks. Depending on the framework, typical usage may not involve writing any SQL, or it may map underscore case to camel case, etc.
Performance of SELECT
Execute 1000 SELECT statements against a DB and map the data returned to a POJO. Code is available here.
|Sql2o||75ms (25% slower)|
|Apache DbUtils||98ms (63% slower)|
|JDBI||197ms (228% slower)|
|MyBatis||293ms (388% slower)|
|jOOQ||447ms (645% slower)|
|Hibernate||494ms (723% slower)|
|Spring JdbcTemplate||636ms (960% slower)|

Note on running Oracle specific tests
In order to run the Oracle database tests you will have to add the Oracle Maven repo to your settings.xml as instructed in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Maven Setup guide
