Developing and maintaining object-relational and object-XML mappings can be difficult and tedious for complex, real-world development scenarios where the object model and/or schema are evolving. Dealing with these complexities with an un-enhanced Java or XML editor is like developing your Java application in a text editor. Dali gives you the tools to efficiently manage change in your model or schema by providing what you have come to expect from Eclipse tools, including validation, code generation, and general Eclipse integration. This talk will showcase what's new in Dali for the upcoming Indigo release, including JAXB support, JPQL content assist, and the addition of refactoring support and enhanced validation for JPA 2.0.
Neil Hauge is a software developer at Oracle and project lead for the Dali Java Persistence Tools (JPT) project in the Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP). He has been developing Java based tools for over 10 years and has been development lead for Oracle TopLink Tools for the past seven. Neil is a member of the Web Tools PMC and an Eclipse project mentor.
Shaun Smith is a Principal Product Manager for Oracle TopLink and an active member of the Eclipse community. He's Ecosystem Development Lead for the EclipseLink project and a committer on the Eclipse Gemini Enterprise Modules, and the Dali Java Persistence Tools projects. He’s currently working on OSGi persistence in Gemini and Oracle TopLink Grid, which integrates Oracle Coherence with EclipseLink JPA to provide “JPA on the Grid”.
