Under Construction

Comic Example using RCP

Software Required

This example illustrates the use of EclipseLink JPA in a simple RCP application. Running this example requires OSGi (Equinox) as well as the following bundles.

  • EclipseLink OSGi bundles (available from the EclipseLink Downloads page and P2)
    • org.eclipse.persistence.core - Core EclipseLink Bundle
    • org.eclipse.persistence.asm - EclipseLink bundling of ASM to enable byte-code weaving
    • org.eclipse.persistence.antlr - EclipseLink bundling of ANTLR used for JPQL parsing
    • javax.persistence - Java Persistence API 2.0 specification
    • org.eclipse.persistence.jpa - EclipseLink JPA Bundle
    • org.eclipse.persistence.jpa.osgi - EclipseLink JPA OSGi Bundle (required only with EclipseLink 2.1 and above)
  • Derby JDBC Driver (available from EclipseLink examples SVN)
    • org.eclipse.persistence.derby - Provides access to the Derby client driver, but does not contain it. See the ReadMe.txt for configuration instructions.
  • Example Bundles (available from EclipseLink examples SVN)
    • org.eclipse.persistence.example.jpa.comics.model.annotated
    • org.eclipse.persistence.example.jpa.comics.setup
    • org.eclipse.persistence.example.jpa.rcp.comics

Understanding the Example

The example is composed of 3 bundles

org.eclipse.persistence.example.jpa.comics.model.annotated Bundle

This bundle contains the domain classes with their JPA mappings specified through annotations. The only required bundle is javax.persistence version "1.99". This is an OSGi-aware version of javax.persistence.


Manifest-Version: 1.0
Bundle-ManifestVersion: 2
Bundle-Name: Model Plug-in
Bundle-SymbolicName: org.eclipse.persistence.example.jpa.comics.model.annotated
Bundle-Version: 1.0.0
Export-Package: org.eclipse.persistence.example.jpa.comics.model.annotated
Bundle-RequiredExecutionEnvironment: J2SE-1.5
Import-Package: javax.persistence;version="2.0.0"

org.eclipse.persistence.example.jpa.comics.setup Bundle

This bundle is a utility that can create the database and populate it from a provided data set.

org.eclipse.persistence.example.jpa.rcp.comics Bundle

Running with Eclipse IDE

The example can easily be run within the Eclipse IDE ...
