ORM Patterns

In practice there are two common ORM patterns:

  • ActiveRecord: uses the model class to handle both business logic and database access.
  • DataMapper: a more complex approach which separates the in-memory objects from the database. Uses two class types:
    • Mapper: handles database access and mapping entities
    • Entities: in-memory representation with business logic

Some ORMs, like TypeORM support both patterns. Others like Sequelize support only ActiveRecord.
