EclipseLink DBWS provides Java EE-compliant, client-neutral access to relational database artifacts via a Web service. EclipseLink DBWS extends EclipseLink's core capabilities while leveraging its existing ORM and OXM components.

EclipseLink DBWS includes two parts

An EclipseLink DBWS service may include any number of the following operations:

  1. insert – inserts into the database persistent entities described by an XML document.

  2. update – updates database persistent entities described by an XML document.

  3. delete – removes from the database persistent entities described by an XML document.

  4. query – retrieves from the database persistent entities described by an XML document.

    Selection criteria for Query operations can be specified by:

    • JP-QL
