About us

Our story

In the early 2000's, ObjectStyle’s founder, Andrus Adamchik, realized there weren’t any good open-source object relational mapping solutions out there. This led him to create Cayenne (now Apache Cayenne) – a framework that helps Java developers efficiently “talk” to databases.

Out of this initiative, in 2002, emerged a company called ObjectStyle, whose original purpose was to help early Cayenne adopters migrate from legacy persistence technologies. ObjectStyle was founded in Atlanta, GA; the company currently has offices in Connecticut, USA, in Minsk, Belarus, and in Warsaw, Poland.

Over the years, ObjectStyle evolved into a full-service provider that is capable of carrying out complex projects: writing software, performing end-to-end testing and quality assurance, creating complex software architectures, and much more (see our services).

One of our most notable projects is the ongoing partnership with the National Hockey League. ObjectStyle has been developing core software for the league’s main web properties since 2006, as well as supporting dozens of internal business applications.

Open-source projects

ObjectStyle has deep roots in the open source community, and the ObjectStyle team are active contributors to open software.

Apache Cayenne, a powerful object-relational mapping and remoting technology.

Bootique.io, a minimally-opinionated framework for runnable Java apps.

Agrest, a protocol and a framework for flexible model-driven REST data services.

LinkMove, an ETL solution for data synchronization across the components of a complex enterprise architecture.

Programmers can use the above solutions as a comprehensive stack that is well-suited for creating lightweight microservices among other things.

In addition to being a programmer with nearly 20 years of experience, Andrus is also a blogger, conference speaker, open-source developer, and ex-Vice President of the Apache Software Foundation.
