Subject Re: [DISCUSS] JPA 2.0 expert group representation
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2007 17:32:31 GMT
Hi Geir,

I'd like to clarify one thing with you.

It's my understanding that OpenJPA is free to implement the JPA  
specification as long as the specification and TCK permit an open  
source implementation, which is true for JPA 1.0 and to the best of  
our knowledge will still be true for (JSR 317).
