Easing JPA data access with Hades

This video introduces the OpenSource library Hades that significantly eases implementing data access layers with JPA. It takes the audience on a guided tour through code samples introducing the features of Hades:
* Executing queries by only declaring interface methods
* Extending the EntityManager to provide a typed interface, programmatic pagination and sort support
* Combining execution of finder methods with pagination
* Auditing of entities to keep track of creation and modification date and user
* Integration of custom data access code
* Integration into Spring applications via Spring namespace and Spring IDE extension


  1. I was not aware of this project but this was a good presentation. This project certainly scratches an itch but I wonder if it was incorporated into the hibernate project would this give it more traction?

  2. Hi John,

    thanks for the warm words… We’re currently sorting out if there’s way’s to get it more close with the Spring eco system. There’s something in the works, so keep an eye on it :)
