JavATE, the Java Application Tiered Engine is a set of Java libraries that enables application development using the domain driven methodology. It gives you standard interfaces and implementations for the domain driven design building blocks so you can focus on your strategic design instead of reinventing the wheel of the building blocks each time.

JavATE is not a Object-Relational-Mapping tool itself because it is based on existing ORM technologies like Hibernate (already) or JPA (not yet implemented).
JavATE is a sort of glue between all these technologies!
