Presentation: "EJB/JPA feedback with the expert group BOF"

Track:   Solution Track 2

Time: Thursday 13:00 - 14:00

Location: Wordsworth Room


The initial version of the Java Persistence API (JPA) was released last year at JavaOne, along with the Java EE 5 specification. Since that time, it has gained significant traction among developers, and all the major object/relational mapping implementations have embraced the new specification. Now that we've gotten the release out, implementations online, and built some real-world experience, it's time to start looking towards the next version of the JPA specification.

Come to this session to hear what new features members of the EJB expert group team are thinking about, and to provide feedback of your own into the future of the JPA specification.
