My understanding is that hibernate annotations can be used independently of EJB3 implementation. In the future if I were to move away from hibernate, can I use this same POJO annotated using hibernate annotations with another EJB3 implementation(other than Hibernate Entity Manager? Or is there any dependency on the Hibernate core?
