Hi Stephane,

thanks for the feedback. Its always appreciated, even negative feedback is
useful. If you like JPA and Click please get the Click book as it has JPA
examples (

This is the perfect spot of more feed back or enhancements. Its often best
discussing these on the dev list before raising a JIRA item, as people can
discuss it.

regards Malcolm Edgar
