Hello Dali! An introduction to the Eclipse Dali Java Persistence API tools project

The Java Persistence API is part of the new Java EE 5 EJB 3.0 specification and defines a vendor-neutral standard for object-relational mapping. But don't be fooled by the term "EJB." The JPA specification was certainly developed under the umbrella EJB 3.0 specification, but that doesn't mean it's just for Java EE. JPA is designed to work in Java SE as well as EE, and will likely be split off into its own specification in the future.
