ORM (Object-Relational Mapping)

Last updated Feb 21, 2024

ORM in computer science is a programming technique for converting data between a relational database and the heap of an Object-Oriented Programming language.

An ORM is a translation layer between the relational database and the Object-Oriented Programming language used. This means that instead of writing SQL yourself, you can use your programming language to generate the SQL.

# Well-Known ORMs

# Is an ORM a Semantic Layer?

No. ORM is for operational, relational databases, whereas a Semantic Layer is for analytics. Both generate SQL tough.
