Welcome to the DB Torque Wiki

This wiki is part of the big Apache Wiki Farm.

What is Torque?

Torque is a persistence layer. Torque generates all the database resources required by your application and includes a runtime environment to run the generated classes.

Torque was developed as part of the Jakarta Turbine Framework. It is now decoupled and can be used by itself. It has also migrated from Apache Jakarta to Apache DB.

The best place to get started with Torque is to visit http://db.apache.org/torque/. For questions and project updates, subscribe to the Torque Mailing Lists or search lists.apache.org.
