Hi All,

Actually there are quite a few really good books out on JPA.

1. Apress has a Book on JPA written by Merrick Schincariol and Michael Keith. Michael is one of the main contributors to the JPA spec, and I want to say leads the Oracle TopLink project? Michael is that close?

2. If you plan to use the Hibernate implementation of JPA, then Java Persistence with Hibernate from Manning is an excellent choice, written by Gavin King, also a main contributor to the JPA spec, and Christian Bauer.

TopLink architect, but close enough, Mark :-)
These days I am actually spending a lot of my time on the new Eclipse Persistence Services (nicknamed EclipseLink) project, which is the open sourcing of TopLink into the Eclipse runtime platform, including implementations of JPA, JAXB, SDO and EIS access. Exciting time to be working with persistence!

Oh Yeah! I heard about that project. Sounds like you get all the fun.

Good Luck and I hope it is very successful.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
