greenDAO 3 Beta released

We just released greenDAO 3 beta: it makes the generator project optional and moves to Java annotations. Before the final release however, we want to get your feedback. In particular, we experimented with alternative annotation processing that gives greenDAO more power while it avoids byte code manipulation.Our goal with greenDAO3 is to put the developer in control over entity classes while augmenting the entity code with a little bit of generated code.

Please find all details in the greenDAO 3 documentation page. Migration from greenDAO 2 may be easier than you might think. If you want to dive deep, you can also check out the v3 branch on GitHub.

We really want to hear from you: what do you think about the new approach? Is the documentation helpful? How can we improve? Please tell us in the comment section below or on the greenDAO Google+ community.

  1. Hello,

    I really like the new version of green dao (v3). Tried on a project of mine and works fine. Besided @Annotations what other changes are in v3 ?

    • Great to hear that! V3 is all about annotations, new features are scheduled for 3.1.
