Re: [ee4j-community] Status of JPA migration

Does you answer imply that this project will definitively be transferred to the EF? Then I'd like to propose that the status page is updated now so at least people see what will come in future. :-)

AFAIK in case of JPA there has been no standalone spec-provided API for
quite long time with reasoning behind that that "the API is
implementation specific and should be provided by vendors/spec
implementations" - in case of EclipseLink the repo with API is one of
the repositories managed by eclipselink project.

 

Well, that's not entirely correct. There is a JPA API (https://github.com/javaee/jpa-spec), but it has not been transferred to Eclipse yet. I guess that is why it is missing from the list. As soon as the project has been created, it will appear there.

I believe that it has been clearly communicated by others that specs and
TCK's as such are being/will be handled separately; these have never
been part of EclipseLink, nor managed by it.
