Kate Orcena and Jake Chew
Greenfossil started off as a Java team and considered themselves a proficient Java practitioner. As a lean team, they are always looking for ways to improve their effectiveness in terms of software design, development and maintainability. They were heavily dependent on Hibernate in all of their Java applications. As they transited from Java to Scala, they needed an immediate replacement for Hibernate. Not being able to find a ready solution, they decided to create a new Scala persistence library which would also enable them to migrate existing applications to Scala without migrating the databases. They’ve since developed more features and tweaked it for better performance. They’ll like to take this opportunity to share how the library works and how it benefits them in their development efforts.
