Object-relational persistence is a key developer requirement for many application developer scenarios. JPA is the Java EE standard for object-relational persistence and was first introduced as part of Java EE 5. As part of the Java EE 6 standards, JPA 2.0 (JSR-317) updates object-relational capabilities with important developer APIs and enhancements.
Key additions in JPA 2.0 include:
Significant programmer productivity improvements
Innovative APIs from Open Source (standardized)
Extended query language
