The Eclipse Persistence Services Project (EclipseLink) provides a comprehensive set of persistence infrastructure with a common foundation. The project is divided up into several components addressing the various persistence services and supporting infrastructure to assist consumers in their use of the project. These components are reflected in the source repository and the bug database.
The foundation component is primarily the common mapping and runtime persistence infrastructure leveraged by the other components. It also contains the native object-relational and object-XML functionality.
