Oracle TopLink   Oracle TopLink JPA: IDE Support


Developing Java Persistence API applications is greatly simplified compared to earlier version of EJB persistence. Although this means that developers can more easily hand-code and configure persistence, there still remains significant benefits to good support for JPA in leading IDE's. Oracle is commited to leading this effort with the support offered with Oracle JDeveloper and Eclipse.


Oracle JDeveloper offers support for developing with JPA as well as developing and testing EJB 3.0 Session beans.

JDeveloper JPA features include: reverse engineering JPA Entities from database tables wizard, wizard for generating of EJB 3.0 Session Beans with EntityManager injection and methods for querying JPA Entities, and test client generation.
