Data access today isn’t just about reading and writing from relational databases anymore. It’s also about mapping your objects to XML and to JSON for use in RESTful web services. It’s about being able to persist your objects in NoSQL databases and being able to cache them in data grids so you can scale out your application to hundreds of servers. The EclipseLink project is well known as an object-relational mapping framework and as the JPA 2.0 reference implementation in Java EE 6, but it is evolving to provide a comprehensive set of data services for Java developers building enterprise and cloud applications in Java EE, Java SE, and in OSGi. In this session we’ll dive into these new services and see how to build modern enterprise Java applications leveraging EclipseLink both in the back end for data persistence and on the front end to build RESTful services that support HTML5 clients.
