Hi sim085,
You might have better luck with posting this question to the Geronimo users
forum (I'll copy them).  OpenJPA definitely supports the use of
<jta-data-source> and <non-jta-data-source> elements.  As long as the
specified datasource is available at the jndi location, then OpenJPA should
be able to resolve to it.

As those referenced instructions indicate, you can always just use the more
"direct" route and specify the datasource url and various properties.  But,
when running in a managed environment, accessing via jndi is a better way to

As far as mis-spelling one of the elements in persistence.xml...  You are
kind of at the mercy of the xsd validation of the persistence.xml.  Maybe
the validation errors can be caught and a more descriptive error message can
be output.  In this scenario, I can't tell which component is detecting the

Good luck,
