EclipseLink 1.1.0 Released!

I am happy to announce that EclipseLink 1.1.0 is now available for download.

There are some useful links off of the download page including a 'getting started page', and the 'release notes' for 1.1.0.

As well as bug fixes, 1.1.0 introduces feature enhancements in the following areas:

The first release of EclipseLink DBWS allows developers to easily and efficiently expose database constructs (tables, SQL, stored procedures).

EclipseLink 1.1.0 JPA support is extended to introduce:

  • a new 1:M mapping that doesn't require a back pointer or a separate join table to hold the associations.

  • TABLE_PER_CLASS Inheritance has been added giving greater flexibility in how your relational tables associate with the classes in a hierarchy.

This release of EclipseLink includes an implementation of SDO 2.1.1 (JSR 235). This implementation conforms to the final draft and is being included with the final draft as the reference implementation.
