September 19th 5:00pm for 5:15 - 6:30pm 2007 — Subject: A Gentle Introduction to JPA (with a little look into the future)

The JPA specification grew out of the work done on the EJB 3 specification and has blossomed into a technology that is capable of being used independently of EJB 3. This makes it ideal for everything from desktop applications to web applications to full-blown Java EE applications. The JPA has strong industry support as well supported in popular frameworks like Spring.

This talk will mainly focus on the basics of the JPA and what one needs to get started, with a couple of advanced topics thrown in for good measure. To finish Mark will take a look at what might be coming in the next iteration of the JPA.
