Eclipselink 1.0 released

EclipseLink last week released version 1.0. First announced at EclipseCon 2007, it was chosen by Sun as the reference implementation for JPA 2.0 at EclipseCon 2008.

Toplink has a successful history in object-relational mapping engines, and Oracle joined the Eclipse Foundation and donated the source for Toplink 10.1.3 to form the EclipseLink project. The goal is to have a standards-compliant persistence framework that can persist to multiple different back-end sources (SQL databases, XML files, legacy systems) using a unified API.

It is consumable as a library for standalone Java applications, or as a set of OSGi bundles for OSGi-aware modular systems. It's also possible to consume the libraries via a maven repository for those who use the Maven build system; and is included in GlassFish and Spring Framework distributions.

A webinar and introductory article are available if you'd like to find out more about EclipseLink, or you can subscribe to the team blog for further updates.
