About the Java Persistence API (JPA)

Java Persistence API (JPA) is an object-relational mapping (ORM) framework, that is, it maps objects to relational databases. JPA provides the standard for object-relational mapping in the Java language. JPA can use either Standard or Enterprise Edition Java.

EclipseLink is one implementation of JPA. It is an open source project, and it works with a large number of databases or platforms. Pervasive has added PSQL as an EclipseLink JPA platform.

The Pervasive database Platform file has been submitted to EclipseLink and is awaiting full promotion. For the latest information about its status and download, go to http://www.pervasivedb.com and navigate to the SDK section of the website.

System Requirements

Using JPA requires the JPA package itself (see Getting Started for download link), a Java installation, and an installation of PSQL v11 SP3.

Getting Started

To access the runtime files for the EclipseLink JPA access method, go to the EclipseLink website: http://www.eclipse.org/eclipselink.
