In the Java world there are 2 (maybe 3) big players in the DAO space:

Hibernate is the old dog (http://hibernate.org/).  Most people I know have moved away from it (too big and complex).

MyBatis is the new dog (http://mybatis.github.io/mybatis-3/) (lighter, simpler)

and some folks prefer Spring JDBC (if you're already into Spring)
http://docs.spring.io/spring-framework/docs/current/spring-framework-reference/html/jdbc.html

Of course framework preferences like this tend to turn into religious wars - but just observing the industry usage from the folks I know MyBatis is the one that's rising fastest these days.  But your mileage may vary :)
