Subject Re: OpenJPA support for JPA 2.1: when?
Date Thu, 23 Oct 2014 15:53:53 GMT
Thanks for the note and reviving this thread...  We are well aware of
TomEE's desire for JPA 2.1 support in OpenJPA.  It would be great to see
JPA 2.1 support in OpenJPA.  But, the community contributions in this arena
have been slim.  This string of notes is one such plea, but there have been
others on users and dev mailing lists as well.

Although it has been pointed out that the majority of the current committer
set is from IBM (that part is true), we would greatly appreciate and
welcome contributions from anybody.  I don't think opening up the
committership to anybody who requests is a viable or valid solution.  I
think establishing some expertise by contributing patches (code, test,
docs, etc) is a valid process for establishing committer karma.

I had started the JPA 2.1 activity by documenting the high-level steps for

But, as you can see, it's been pretty dormant.  Everybody involved with
Apache projects have "day jobs".  And, as a good friend of mine once
stated, "open source is not free".  So, if the JPA 2.1 support is required
by the OpenJPA community, then it's time for action.  As many of you know,
the OpenJPA solution is a very solid, well performing implementation of the
JPA specification.  But, we will need additional input to make the
implementation of JPA 2.1 real.

Just telling it like it is...
