Hehe, of course I'll suggest to help Cayenne, but you've been warned ;-)

In other words if that's an offer to work together with Cayenne  
developers to address the things missing or broken in the JPA  
provider, we will gladly accept such help.

I am not a Hibernate expert, so I don't know if there's one-to-one  
mapping between Hibernate and JPA annotations across the board. But  
it appears that there is at least a close match. From your example:

Hibernate: generator-class="sequence" column="cdarea" unsaved- 
value = "null"
@hibernate.generator-param name = "sequence" value =  



Unfortunately this is also an example of an annotation currently  
ignored by Cayenne provider (i.e. the one that still needs to be  
bridged with Cayenne runtime), so that gives a glimpse of the  
limitations you'll have to deal with.

As for the documentation, I suggest the JPA spec [1] for the full  
list of annotations. There's also a number of recent books on EJB3  
and more specifically JPA.
