What's new and coming in Java Persistence
Doug Clarke (Oracle ), Shaun Smith (Oracle )
Java Persistence support at Eclipse is supplied by the EclipseLink project (RT) and the Dali project (WTP). Working together these projects are delivering standards based persistence addressing JPA 1.0, JPA 2.0, and JAXB 2.2 runtime implementations with many useful advanced features. In this talk we'll give you an update on the latest advancements in persistence delivered in the Helios release train highlighting runtime features, usage in Java EE and OSGi containers, as well as the standard and EclipseLink specific support offered by Dali. The future of persistence runtime and tooling will also be addressed as we look at new features in both projects coming in future releases including RESTful EclipseLink applications and the new Graphiti based entity modeller.
