The EclipseLink JPA sample is designed to show how you can easily replace the default JPA provider used in WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile with an alternate JPA provider. It contains a server definition which includes the Servlet, JDBC and JPA features. It also contains a very simple JPA application, jpaSample.war, which contains a single servlet, JPAServlet. This servlet persists a JPA entity (named "Thing") to a derby database and then retrieves the entiry from the database.
This sample can be installed onto runtime versions 126.96.36.199 and later.
