Subject Prototype for a new aries jpa impl
Date Thu, 02 Apr 2015 13:41:08 GMT
I am experimenting for some time with a new way to implement jpa support.

You can find the design on this website:

The prototype code is at:

The goals for the new design are:
- Simpler and more robust implementation using OSGi service dynamics. 
Tracking all dependencies and publishing / unpublishing 
EntityManagerFactory when any go away
- Move some functionality to other projects like wrapping XA DataSources 
to pax-jdbc.
- Support for other frameworks like declarative services using 
JPATemplate and closures

The current code is not yet complete but already works for blueprint and DS.

I would be happy about any feedback.

Especially I would be interested if with the new approach Quiesce is 
still necessary. The code already makes sure that the 
EntityManagerFactory is nicely cleaned up. EntityManagers are only held 
for the duration of a request. So if blueprint Quiesce shuts down the 
requests then I think the jpa impls should not need to do additional 
work here. I tested to update all modules at runtime and all seems to 
work nicely. With the current aries jpa I can not update the persistence 
unit bundles. See
