Dali 3.3 has been released as of June 26th, 2013 as a part of the larger Kepler release.
The Dali Java Persistence Tools Project, a sub-project of the Web Tools Platform Project , provides extensible frameworks and tools for the definition and editing of Object-Relational (O/R) mappings for Java Persistence API (JPA) entities. JPA mapping support focuses on minimizing the complexity of mapping by providing entity generation wizards, design-time validation, and a rich UI for entity and persistence unit configuration.

The Persistence of Memory

The focus of Dali is support for JPA O/R mapping which is concerned with the persistence of in memory Java POJOs to relational databases. The title of the famous painting "The Persistence of Memory" aptly describes the goal of the JPA specification and provides the link to the Spanish painter Salvador Dali.
