The creation of EclipseLink, the Eclipse Persistence Services Project, signals the inauguration of a new generation of Java persistence where all of the dominant persistence standards are implemented and accessible from a single source. EclipseLink is composed of a set of separate runtime components that can be used in both clients and servers, and is the first open source project to offer a full suite of persistence technologies. By supporting all of the popular standards, including object-relational mapping using the Java Persistence API (JPA), object-to-XML mapping through the Java API for XML Binding (JAXB), and loosely bound Service Data Objects (SDO) that bridge the relational and XML worlds, EclipseLink will provide the most comprehensive persistence platform available. Equally compelling is the fact that these technologies are offered with a rich array of feature extensions and high-end performance options.

In this session, attendees will learn what EclipseLink is, the standard technologies it implements, and how these technologies can be used separately or together to meet advanced and diverse application requirements. We will show examples of how to use EclipseLink to map Java objects in object-relational and object-XML contexts, and how it can be used in any runtime environment, including Eclipse RCP, Java SE, Java EE, Spring and Tomcat.

Shaun Smith is Ecosystem Development Lead for EclipeLink, the Eclipse Java Persistence Platform, co-lead of the Eclipse Dali Java Persistence API Tools Project, a committer on the Teneo project, and a product manager for Oracle TopLink. He hass been building systems using object-relational mapping technologies for a decade in both Java and Smalltalk.
