Feedsee Software : Open Source Persistence Project : Oracle TopLink

Oracle has given its Java persistence framework, TopLink, to the open source community. The software offers object-to-relational, object-to-XML, and Enterprise Information System data access through the major standards, including the Java Persistence API, Java API for XML Binding, Service Data Objects, and the Java Connector Architecture. Oracle TopLink works with any database, any application server, any development toolset and process and any Java application architecture. In addition to its code contribution, Oracle proposes to lead a new Eclipse run-time project to provide a set of persistence services that can be utilized in Java and OSGi environments. Oracle will use the existing code base as the starting point for this project. Oracle will help create a set of blueprints that define how OSGi applications can access standardized persistence technologies.
