Table 5-74 Valid Values for partitioning

Value Description


An existing, defined PartitioningPolicy.


Use this property to partition data for a class across multiple difference databases or across a database cluster such as Oracle RAC. Partitioning may provide improved scalability by allowing multiple database machines to service requests.

If multiple partitions are used to process a single transaction, use JTA (Java Transcription API) for proper XA transaction support.


Example 5-74 Using partitioning in persistence.xml

<property name="eclipselink.partitioning" value="Replicate" />
