Speedment is a Java toolkit and runtime to create database application for existing databases. The Open-Source project Speedment was launched in 2015 with the main objective to bring the Java 8 Stream API to database application developers. We love Java and wondered why we need to type SQL when, instead, we could derive the same semantics directly from the streams? Since then Speedment Open Source has evolved and the current version is Speedment Forest (3.0). Every new major version is named after a street in Palo Alto, starting from Palo Alto Avenue. Speedment is licensed under the business friendly Apache 2 license. We encourage contribution from users. Please feel free to request new features, suggest improvements and file bug reports.
