Hi Mike & Merrick,

1. What are the new features/enhancements in JPA 2 over JPA 1.0?
2. Are there topics focussed on best practices, design patterns for persistence with JPA?

1. I wrote a couple of articles a while back that highlight some of the new features. A criteria API was also added.

2. Yes.
