Simple JPA set up for standalone environment

Hi,
I want to do some standalone stuff with JPA. That means no AppServer. I am looking for the simpliest JPA option here i.e. small footprint.
Any advice on whether to go with EclipseLink, Hibernate or anything else?

Thanks

EclipseLink can do it with omne jar for compiling: the java.persistence.x jar that comes as part of the download for compiling. But you require the eclipselink.jar at runtime. Otherwise you'll get headrecking errors.
