Eric Evans' book Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software prescribes a
domain-driven approach to designing object-oriented software. The Domdrides library tries to help
facilitate this design approach for projects written in Java. Currently, Domdrides helps with the
following domain-driven design concepts:
- Entities - an entity is a persistent object in your domain model such as a Person or an
Account. Domdrides provides useful base classes for implementing entities.
- Repositories - a repository contains entities of a specific type. For example, you might
have a PersonRepository or AccountRepository in your domain model. Implementations for
The Java Persistence API (JPA)
, and iBATIS are
available for you to extend.
