Re: [eclipselink-dev] [eclipselink-users] EclipseLink 2.5 now Available

A colleague just pointed my at the autoApply property of the @Converter annotation. It can be used to have a converter be automatically applied to a particular data type. I suspect that is what you are looking for. It is supported in EclipseLink 2.5.

Hi Joseph,

   EclipseLink has always had a pretty extensive converter API, JPA 2.1 has
simply formalized more of it.  It should be reasonably easy to write converters
for the various joda-time data structures.

   Can you please describe a bit more what you mean by converters
auto-registering themselves?

    Thank you to everyone involved in making this release.

I'm seriously thinking about migrating our software to use EclipseLink instead
of Hibernate (too many open issues and doesn't handle lazy-loading outside
transaction safely,
Are there any docs on how to use joda-time (2.x) with EclipseLink >= 2.5
(jpa-2.1) and it's new Converter-API? In Hibernate it's possible to have the
converters register automatically and the usertype-library
( provides converters for joda-time, is it
possible to have joda-time converters auto-registering themselvs in
EclipseLink-2.5 with JPA-2.1?
