Subject Re: Rename property PersistenceUnitName to Name

I agree.  There is no need to be so verbose, and the concept of a persistence unit was and
is fully embodied by JDO's PersistenceManagerFactory.  The only new concept, IMHO, is to name
it, and "name" is sufficient to capture this.  Can you enter a JIRA for this and I'll make
a patch?

Subject: Rename property PersistenceUnitName to Name

It seems that we added PersistenceUnitName to the  
PersistenceManagerFactory before completely understanding the usage,  
which primarily is to assign a name when configuring the PMF via  

I now believe that the "PersistenceUnit" part of the property name is  
distracting, and the real property name should be simply "Name". That  
is, PersistenceManagerFactories can have a Name property. The javadoc  
and other documentation can call out that this name is the same as  
the PersistenceUnit name in JPA, but I don't think that there is  
value in calling it PersistenceUnitName.

The implication is a change in the PersistenceManagerFactory API and  
the jdoconfig xsd.

Any comments?
