FWIW, in our case we need to be "closer to the metal" and thus wrote
directly to the Neo API for all of our persistence logic and querying logic
(with our own domain-specific wrappers). My experience has always been that
frameworks make the easy stuff easier, but when you run into a challenging
requirement that the framework doesn't handle easily, it's often hard to
make it do what it wasn't originally intended to do...

I'm busy with a new project and have chosen neo4j (n00b, still learning...)
as the datastore.
I'm trying to decide on whether to use neo4j API directly or an annotation
based framework for persisting, querying, POJO mapping for nodes etc.

I've found two such frameworks:
  jo4neo - http://code.google.com/p/jo4neo/
  Spring Data - http://www.springsource.org/spring-data

Can anybody on the list please tell me if they've used either of these
frameworks before,
if they're recommended over neo4j API for simple persistance/querying, etc.,
pros/cons, performance difference in comparison to API and which one is

Keep up the good work neo4j!
