1. Object Relational Mapping.

Object Relational Mapping (ORM) is a software development method or framework providing an interface to a RDBMS. It is the responsibility of the ORM to translate RDBMS data types and methods into a more convenient form for use by an application.

Typically in an ORM tables are mapped to classes, and each row in a table is managed by an object.

Object Relational Mapping is also sometimes abbreviated as:

  • ORM
  • O/RM
  • O/R mapping.
