I am reading "Pro JPA2" book by Mike.
I am trying to execute JPA example (given in Chapter 2) using J2SE . I am using MYSQL DB.
here is the code

Persistence.xml file

I have created all these above mentioned files but now i am not able to run it using J2SE
Please let me know how can i package it and run it using J2SE?
What will be mandatory lib/jar files that i require to run this code successfully?

Putting my question in different way

I want to know the steps that i should follow to run a sample JPA code (as mentioned above in my post) in a J2SE eniv.
I have got all code ready but do not know how to run it for eg - what are the dependent lib/jars that i will require, what will be folder structure in which i should organize my above mentioned code etc ?

The folder structure is immaterial - choose whatever you like. The way you run your code is also immaterial - Ant, Maven, command line, from a script - whatever way you're comfortable with will work. There's nothing special about JPA in that regard.

The libraries you need are a) JPA, 2) the JDBC driver for your DB, and c) the libraries that make up whatever JPA implementation you're using (for example, OpenJPA, Hibernate or EclipseLink).
