EclipseLink JPA


Database and Application Server Support

EclipseLink supports a number of database platforms and application servers, as described below.

Database Support

EclipseLink supports any relational database that is compliant with SQL and has a compliant JDBC driver. EclipseLink has extended support for several database platforms. The extended support mainly consists of providing native sequencing support, schema creation, and certain database functions. These platform classes are in the [org.eclipse.persistence.platform.database] package.

The following databases are supported. Click the names below to see the Javadoc that describes the support for that platform:
