Java Persistence

Java Persistence

This book is meant to cover Java persistence, that is, storing stuff in the Java
programming language to a persistent storage medium. Specifically using the Java
Persistence API (JPA) to store Java objects to relational databases, but I would like it to have a somewhat wider scope than just JPA and concentrate more on general persistence
patterns and use cases, after all JPA is just the newest of many failed Java persistence
standards, this book should be able to evolve beyond JPA when it is replaced by the next
persistence standard. I do not want this to be just a regurgitation of the JPA Spec, nor a
User Manual to using one of the JPA products, but more focused on real-world use cases of
users and applications trying to make use of JPA (or other Java persistence solution) and
the patterns they evolved and pitfalls they made.
