Welcome to JDAL
JDAL is an open source Java library that aims to help developers making database applications easily. JDAL helps you to find what you really need to code and what is already coded in a common java database application, avoiding the complexity of many common programming tasks.
JDAL is built on top of Hibernate ORM and Spring framework and provides you with a set of core database services and UI Componentes ready to be used via configuration on Spring context configuration files.
Please, read our sample application for quicker information.
JDAL is freely usable, licensed under the Apache 2.0 license.
