Hi all. I am new in EclipseLink, so I hope my question wiil be not too
dummy :-)
I would like to know if there is an easy way to use generics and
eclipselink jpa in order to implement DAO for generics object. I know for
example that using Hibernate there is an HibernateDaoSupport that allow to
handle this. Is this possible using also eclipselink?
To be more clear, i would like to have something similar to y.html
but using eclipselink ORM.

Best Regards,

Should be pretty simple to do this.

Something like:
public abstract class BaseDAOJPA<T>
implements BaseDAO<T> {
public void save(T object) {

public T get(Serializable id) {
return getEntityManager().find(getModelClass(), id);

public void remove(T object) {

public void remove(Serializable id) {

public List<T> loadAll() {
return getEntityManager().createQuery("Select o from " +
getModelClass().getSimpleName() + " o");

protected abstract Class<T> getModelClass();
