MyBatis vs SQLAlchemy: What are the differences?
What is MyBatis? SQL Mapper Framework for Java. It is a first class persistence framework with support for custom SQL, stored procedures and advanced mappings. It eliminates almost all of the JDBC code and manual setting of parameters and retrieval of results. It can use simple XML or Annotations for configuration and map primitives, Map interfaces and Java POJOs (Plain Old Java Objects) to database records.
What is SQLAlchemy? The Python SQL Toolkit and Object Relational Mapper. SQLAlchemy is the Python SQL toolkit and Object Relational Mapper that gives application developers the full power and flexibility of SQL.
MyBatis can be classified as a tool in the "Java Tools" category, while SQLAlchemy is grouped under "Object Relational Mapper (ORM)".
MyBatis and SQLAlchemy are both open source tools. It seems that MyBatis with 11.5K GitHub stars and 7.26K forks on GitHub has more adoption than SQLAlchemy with 3.36K GitHub stars and 888 GitHub forks.
MonkeyLearn, WakaTime, and YOU-app are some of the popular companies that use SQLAlchemy, whereas MyBatis is used by Jobsrepublic, Luxottica Retail, and Consignet. SQLAlchemy has a broader approval, being mentioned in 46 company stacks & 122 developers stacks; compared to MyBatis, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 16 developer stacks.
