Dali JPA Tools: What's New in 2.2!

From Ganymede to Galileo, "What's New in 2.2" will showcase a host of exciting features that will be available in the upcoming 2.2 release. Using JPA in your application is about to get even easier with the addition of automated mapping, enhanced entity generation from tables, advanced EclipseLink support, and more.

New opportunities for server adapter providers in the new Server View

In Webtools 3.1, the Server View is being migrated to the Common Navigator Framework. Not only is this a significant change in appearance, the adoption of Common Navigator allows server adapter providers to present any amount of information relevant to their server types directly in the view.

This talk will contrast the old view with the new, and demonstrate some possible uses of this new flexibility, including cluster operations, JMX management of the server, or other quick shortcuts.
