Does the book take you through setting up JPA2 within your project? What are the dependencies for JPA - what do I need to install?

Hi Paul,

Yes, as we describe in the book, getting a project to use JPA is as easy as putting the JPA spec APIs and a vendor jar(s) on the classpath. There is little else to do except to start writing to the Java Persistence API.

I agree. Here's the link:
