Neil Hauge

The new Java Persistence API (JPA) defines a standard set of Object-Relational mappings and a standard API that can be used in both Java EE and SE applications for Java persistence. The Dali JPA Tools Project brings JPA development to Eclipse for both out of container and in container deployment. This tutorial will focus on the how to use Dali to build both Java SE and EE applications that use JPA and how to test them in Eclipse using JUnit. Topics include the EntityManager and Query APIs, core O/R mappings, and configuring your environment for testing and deployment. Attendees are expected to bring a laptop to participate in hands on exercises however it is not absolutely required.

Shaun Smith is co-lead of the Eclipse Dali Java Persistence API (JPA) Tools Project and a product manager for Oracle TopLink, Oracle's JPA implementation and the basis of the open source 'TopLink Essentials' JPA Reference Implementation. He has been building systems using object-relational mapping technologies for almost a decade in both Java and Smalltalk in the banking, telecommunications, and energy industries. Shaun's a frequent conference presenter and has recently spoken at Eclipse Summit Europe, EclipseWorld, The Server Side Symposium, JavaPolis, and JavaOne.

Neil Hauge is a principal software developer at Oracle and leads the Dali JPA Tools project in the Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP). He has been developing Java based Object-Relational Mapping tools for over six years and has been development lead for the Oracle TopLink Workbench for the past three. Prior to joining Oracle, Neil led Java development projects at IBM and WebGain. He has been developing GUI applications in Java since JDK1.1, with experience in AWT/Swing and SWT/JFace.
