Type-Safe Criteria and MetaData API in JPA 2.0 - Expert Group Delivers Proposed Final Draft
By pelegri on Mar 27, 2009
One more JavaEE 6 specification in Proposed Final Draft: Linda has announced the availability of JPA 2.0 PFD. This draft includes a number of significant changes, including the replacement of an earlier version of criteria API with a typesafe API, support for validation, and a metamodel API.
As pointed by Linda, the changes to the criteria API and the new metamodel API came through a proposal from Gavin to the EG; a great example of how the EG can pool the expertise from experts in the Java community, regardless of their company affiliation.
