Subject Apache OpenJPA Graduates from Incubation to Become Top Level Project
Date Thu, 21 Jun 2007 15:48:32 GMT
I'm pleased to announce that the Apache Incubator has recommended, and the Apache Board of
Directors has accepted, a resolution to create the Apache OpenJPA Top Level Project.

Apache OpenJPA is a project that implements Object Relational Mapping, and currently implements
the standard JCP JSR-220 Java Persistence API (JPA). The latest release passes the JCP TCK
for JSR-220 100%, meaning it is fully compliant with the standard.

Starting with a contribution by BEA of the mapping engine and JPA interface from the popular
Kodo project, OpenJPA attracted support from a diverse set of contributors, committers, and
users from independent individuals and companies, including several Apache projects. The project
has learned how to govern itself and has produced two releases while in incubation.

To assist in developing persistence applications OpenJPA works out-of-the-box with popular
IDE's such as Eclipse and Netbeans. Additionally, plugin modules are available for the Apache
Maven software project management and comprehension tool.

Many projects have adopted OpenJPA to provide the Object Relational Mapping for their needs,
including Apache ActiveMQ, BEA Kodo, BEA WebLogic Server, Apache Camel, Apache Geronimo, Apache
Ode, Apache OpenEJB, and IBM WebSphere Application Server. The community plans shortly to
release version 1.0.0 of OpenJPA, reflecting the maturity and production quality of the code
base.

Additionally, OpenJPA has been integrated with numerous other frameworks including Spring
Framework, GlassFish, JOnAS Application Server, Sun Java System Application Server.
