Troy, MI, April 29, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Java™ Persistence with JPA by Daoqi Yang, Ph.D. The author's most recent book to date is a 7.5 x 9.25 paperback in the computers and Java programming language category and is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/jpabook was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.
This book introduces Java Persistence API 2.0, the latest Java technology on persisting Java objects into relational databases. It is part of Java EE 6.0 standards, but can be used in both Java SE and Java EE applications. This is a new Java persistence standard based on object-relational mapping and utilizing object-oriented features of Java. It is expected to gradually replace JDBC and proprietary object-relational mapping frameworks for most Java applications with database access.
The book is written for Java developers and architects who know Java programming, but want to learn this new and standard technology. It is also aimed at experienced JPA developers who may use this book as a reference. Java Persistence with JPA is easy to understand and provides many useful code examples, and it also tries to be complete in JPA coverage. It has a special chapter on JPA design patterns and performance tuning.
Using JPA (Java Persistence API) consists of two main tasks. The first is to map Java classes and their fields/properties to relational database tables and columns. The second is to manipulate (create, read, update, and delete) Java objects so that the underlying JPA implementation translates Java operations into JDBC calls and executes SQL statements behind the scene. JPA provides many easy-to-use features such as optimistic locking, pessimistic locking, lazy-loading, object caching, bean validation, and listeners for transactional events, all of which would be daunting tasks for a typical developer to implement when using JDBC.
JPA makes software development fun and leads to improved productivity.
