EclipseLink Update: Source checked in

We are happy to announce that under the Eclipse parallel IP review process we have checked the initial source contribution (Oracle TopLink) into the Eclipse SVN repository.

The EclipseLink committers are now busy resolving some open issues related to the switch to ANTR 3.0 and the default XML parser. When these issues are resolved and our build process fine tuned we'll produce a 0.1-incubation distribution for early adopters to work with. We expect this to be accomplished within next couple of weeks.

If you have any questions about EclipseLink functionality please send them to
