Presentation: "JPA"

Time: Wednesday 10:30 - 11:20

Location: Kammermusik


JPA 2.0 is an evolution of the JPA section of the EJB3 specification. In this session, Patrick begins with an introduction to JPA as a whole, and covers the proposed timeline for the JPA 2.0 specification.

Patrick then moves on to new features in the current draft. He walks you through code examples demonstrating new functionality, and highlights how the new functionality augments the existing JPA specification. Patrick finishes this session with a sneak peek at the features still on the drawing board for the specification.
