The EclipseLink 2.4.0 release is planning to include an easy to use RESTful interface for interacting with JPA persistence units. This page captures the requirements and design efforts. All feedback is welcome using the discussion page or through the bug 362900.
Persistence Unit Access
In order for JPA-RS to access a persistence unit it must be made available through one of the following mechanisms:
- Available on classpath of running JPA-RS instance so standard JPA bootstrapping can find it
- Provisioned: This requires a PUT call to the service to inform it of a PU
- Pass in all of the configuration
- Pass in minimal information with information about where to retrieve additional config from
