Iam pretty new to the JPA world, so please excuse if this question is dumb.
I would like to use JPA and came across HibernateEntityManager which is an implementation of EJB3. I also saw that Websphere 6.1.0.3 and Weblogic 9.2 support JPA.However Websphere 6.1.0.3 needs a Feature pack which has "preliminary" implementation of EJB3. Now, is it possible to integrate hibernate Entity Manager with Websphere 6.1/Weblogic 9.2 and use that instead of either Weblogic's or Websphere's JPA implementation? I read this in IBM developer works page and not sure what they mean by this...

�Hibernate's JPA support provides for JPA standard persistence and is a good alternative to the proprietary Hibernate APIs. Hibernate's JPA implementation requires a Java SE 5 based runtime, and therefore only runs on WebSphere Application Server V6.1 or later. At the time of publication, Hibernate's JPA support does not run on WebSphere z/OS and iSeries platforms. The Hibernate documentation describes how to package and deploy applications using Hibernate's JPA implementation.�

Does this mean HibernateEntityManager can work with Websphere 6.1?

Yes, anywhere you have an EJB3 compatible app server, means you can use Hibernate's implementation of JPA.
