The OSGi framework is a dynamic component model that is growing in popularity within enterprise architectures. The IBM® WebSphere® Application Server V7 Feature Pack for OSGi Applications and Java™ Persistence API (JPA) 2.0 was delivered for use with WebSphere Application Server V7.0 with Fix Pack 9 and above. This article describes the steps involved in converting a Java EE Web application that uses JPA 1.0 to an OSGi application that uses features in JPA 2.0 plus Blueprint injection of objects. Sample code for a simple WebSphere Application Server application is included for illustrative purposes. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
