Subject Re: Testing an OpenJPA module

FYI, Persistence is an open source project at Glassfish.

Anyone, even an OpenJPA contributor, who wants to contribute to the  
project for example to improve the error messages, is welcome to look  
at the sources and provide a patch. I know people who will be happy  
to commit usability patches. ;-)
