Description : Geronimo JSR-317 Java Persistence (JPA) 2.0 Spec API
The Java Persistence API is the Java API for the management of persistence and
object/relational mapping for Java EE and Java SE environments.
The goal of this specification is to provide an object/relational mapping
facility for the Java application developer using a Java domain model
to manage a relational database.
Persistence in this context covers three areas:
- The API itself, defined in the javax.persistence package.
- The Java Persistence Query Language (JPQL).
- Object/relational metadata.
The Java Persistence 2.0 specification addresses improvements in the areas of
domain modeling, object/relational mapping, EntityManager and Query
interfaces, and the Java Persistence query language. It adds an API for
criteria queries, a metamodel API, and support for validation.
This package contains only API of JSR-317 spec. Apache OpenJPA and Eclipselink
are implementations of this spec.
This library is needed to package OpenJPA and EclipseLink, which in turn,
they are needed to package Spring Framework 3.0.
