Java SIG: JPA - What's New



  • Topic: JPA - What's New

    Presenters: Peter Krogh (EclipseLink co-lead) and Gordon Yorke (JPA 2.0 expert group & EclipseLink tech-lead)


    JSR 317, Java Persistence API (JPA) 2.0, defines the standard for Java relational persistence. Open source EclipseLink is the JPA 2.0 Persistence Provider for numerous Java EE implementations and serves as the reference implementation with GlassFish. In addition to implementing JPA 2.0, EclipseLink also provides a number of advanced features, including caching infrastructure (with support for clustered caching), dynamic persistence, customized tree graph retrieval and others.

    This session will look at the new JPA 2.0 specification and beyond to the advanced features the reference implementation provides to support building Java EE 6 applications.


    Gordon Yorke is an EclipseLink Architecture Council member, JSR 317 (JPA 2.0) Expert Group member and long time developer of EclipseLink  and its past permutations.  With over 10 years of ORM framework experience Gordon brings a wealth of knowledge on object-relational persistence, data-access and caching.

    Peter Krogh is co-lead of the EclipseLink Project, and a development manager for Oracle's TopLink product. He has over 12 years of history with Java Persistence in development management, core development and consulting roles. Peter is also a committer on other open source projects including Eclipse Gemini.
