EclipseLink JPA 2.1

This page contains a summary of the major features supported in EclipseLink that implements the JPA 2.1 (JSR 338) specification requirements. The features and examples on this page do not represent a complete list. For more information, please see: the JSR 338 page.


Bulk Update

Until JPA 2.1, performing deletes or updates was not available using the Criteria API. Through the addition of CriteriaUpdate/CriteriaDelete classes, support for bulkupdate/delete queries has now been added.

Update Example

The following example will update the salary and status, of all Employees who make less than 10000$, and give them a raise.

  CriteriaUpdate<Employee> q = cb.createCriteriaUpdate(Employee.class);
  Root<Employee> emp = q.from(Employee.class);
  .set(e.get(Employee_.salary), cb.prod(e.get(Employee_.salary), 1.1f))
  .set(e.get(Employee_.status), "full_time")
  .where(cb.lt(emp.get(Emploee_.salary), 10000));


The following Java Persistence query language update statement is equivalent.

  UPDATE Employee e SET e.salary = e.salary * 1.1, e.status = "full_time" WHERE e.salary < 10000


Delete Example

The folowwing example deletes all the PhoneNumbers that are no longer in service

  CriteriaDelete<PhoneNumber> q = cb.createCriteriaDelete(PhoneNumber.class);
  Root<PhoneNumber> p = q.from(PhoneNumber.class);
  q.where(cb.equal(p.get(PhoneNumber_.status), "out_of_service"),


The following Java Persistence query language delete statement is equivalent.

  DELETE FROM PhoneNumber p
    WHERE p.status = 'out_of_service'
