What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

JPOX 1.2 was released March 2008. This is the first release after passing the JPA TCK.

JPOX passed JPA1 TCK in Febuary 2008 making it a JPA compliant persistence framework. This is the first full version that supports JPA 1, and JDO 1, JDO 2 and JDO 2.1.

JPOX like Hibernate provides transparent persistence for Javaobjects. Unlike Hibernate, JPOX supports persistence to not only allpopular RDBMS but also DB4O object datastore, and it supports JDO.

JPOX is the reference implementation for JDO. Read about this release at the JPOX site.

JPOX is an Apache 2 licensed opens source persistence framework that is compliant with JDO1, JDO2, JDO2.1 and JPA1 specifications.

JPOX claims to be highly performant and claims to outperform other O/R mappers using published benchmarks.
