= Welcome to the DB Torque Wiki =

This wiki is part of the [[http://wiki.apache.org/general/|big Apache Wiki Farm]].

= What is Torque? =

Torque is a persistence layer. Torque generates all the database resources required by your application and includes a runtime environment to run the generated classes.
Torque was developed as part of the [[http://jakarta.apache.org/turbine/|Jakarta Turbine Framework]]. It is now decoupled and can be used by itself. It has also migrated from Apache Jakarta to Apache DB.

The best place to get started with Torque is to visit http://db.apache.org/torque/. For questions and project updates, subscribe to the [[http://db.apache.org/torque/mail-lists.html|Torque Mailing Lists]] or search this third-party [[http://www.nabble.com/Apache-DB---Torque-Users-f119.html|archive]] hosted by [[http://www.nabble.com|Nabble]].
