What is Objectify?

It is a Java data access API specifically designed for the Google Cloud Datastore. It occupies a "middle ground"; easier to use and more transparent than JDO or JPA, but significantly more convenient than the low-level API libraries that Google provides. Objectify is designed to make novices immediately productive yet also expose the full power of the Datastore.
Objectify is a tool in the Database Tools category of a tech stack.
Objectify is an open source tool with 710 GitHub stars and 162 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Objectify's open source repository on GitHub
