The Evolution of Java Persistence

The data access requirements of today’s Java applications keep expanding and have grown to include features such as tenant data isolation for cloud deployment, extensible models to support per tenant customization, JSON binding for RESTful web services, the ability to store Java objects in NoSQL databases and more.

EclipseLink is well known as an object-relational mapping framework and as the JPA 2.0 reference implementation in Java EE 6, but it continues to evolve and now provides a comprehensive set of data services for Java developers building enterprise and cloud applications in Java EE and SE. In this session we’ll dive into these new services and build an application that goes from mobile device to back end storage leveraging EclipseLink both in the back end for data persistence and on the front end for JSON over REST to support HTML5 clients.
