Persistence in J2EE : JPA tutorial and example

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

I’m currently performing a study on J2EE persistence tools and frameworks, and I came accross this great JPA tutorial using implementations by Hibernate and Toplink.

Serge Tahé provides very clear and simple explanations based on easy to run examples, both in Hibernate and Toplink (and with a great variety of databases - I ran most of them with Derby, just because I already had it running on my machine). The tutorial exposes progressive examples going from very basic peristence code to quite advanced mapping configurations, and explores some of the limits of the tools, as well as behavior differences between Hibernate and toplink. It is accessible to a large public : almost from java beginners to expert who do not yet have a deep experience in JPA.

All in french unfortunately for those of you who don’t speak our wonderful language…

Hello world!
