RE: [eclipselink-users] Recommended JPA Books?

	"Pro EJB 3: Java Persistence API" by Mike and Merrick is very good - I recommend getting 2 copies - It is my first reference.
	As someone recently new to JPA, I benefit from a lot of perspectives. You could checkout the following second book because it has yielded some extra insights as well.  The section "Part II - The JBoss Workbook" has some good standard JPA examples.

		"Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 - 5th Edition" by Bill Burke and Richard Monson-Haefel

	For example, I found it curious why the bidirectional one<-->many and many<-->one relationships are the same based on who the owner was and how I defined the db constraints. The 2 books helped, If you goto P.99 of "Pro EJB 3" and P.117 of "EJB 3.0", both explain why these two are equivalent but in different ways.  I think P.99 explains the reason why in better detail, while p.117 offers a good summary with the title "The Seven Relationship Types" - not 8.

Agreed. It's the best JPA book I've read.
