The primary reason was the license, Hibernate is LGPL and it's not
compatible with the Apache license. But we've found some other benefits
during the migration.

For us an important one is the good control OpenJPA gives you on the flush.
Theoretically you can do the same thing with Hibernate but practically when
you're in a JTA environment it just flushes whenever it wants (depending on
the queries you execute). If you don't flush exclusively at the end of the
transaction you can very quickly run into very hard to solve deadlocks with
some non MVCC databases (thinking mostly of SQL Server 2000 here).

Cheers,
Matthieu
