Program for JPA integration

The Java™ Persistence API (JPA) is a specification that allows mapping Java objects to relational databases. JPA contains a full object-relational mapping (ORM) specification using Java language metadata annotations, XML descriptors, or both to define the mapping between Java objects and a relational database. A number of open-source and commercial implementations are available.

To use JPA, have a supported JPA provider, such as OpenJPA or Hibernate, JAR files, and a META-INF/persistence.xml file in the class path.
