[eclipselink-users] Support for inner classes?


We are heavily using (non-static) inner classes and were quite
surprised to find that most persistence frameworks do _NOT_
support those, simply because non-static inner classes never 
have a default constructor with no arguments.

I would like to know if EclipseLink offers some means for
making instances of inner classes persistent. Is there API for
retrieving an object from persistent storage using a non-default

I have seen a couple of presentations on EclipseLink but have 
not yet taken a closer look, so a simple "No, its not supported" 
or "Yes, it can be done, but ..." would already help for our 
decission whether or not we should investigate EclipseLink 
in depth. Initial pointers where to look for such functionality
are of course appreciated.
