EclipseLink Will be JPA 2.0 Reference Implementation

Oracle Corporation provided TopLink Essentials as the JPA 1.0 reference implementation. Two days ago (17 March 2008), it was announced that EclipseLink was selected as the JPA 2.0 reference implementation. The GlassFish announcement on this states that EclipseLink essentially includes most of Oracle's full-fledged TopLink product.

Because Oracle did provide TopLink Essentials as the Java Persistence API 1.0 reference implementation and because Oracle has been an ardent supporter of JPA, it is not too surprising that the Oracle-led EclipseLink project will be the JPA 2.0 reference implementation.
