Object Access Layer

  • 2 minutes to read

An object access layer (OAL for short) is a mediator between a session (or unit of work) and a data access layer. An OAL translates object queries and storage schema updates to corresponding statements, and passes them to a data access layer for execution. With OALs, sessions and units of work abstract data access at the object level, while leaving data store specifics to data access layers.

XPO provides the following object layer implementations.
