Hi,
Am preparing for the JPA2 certification exam.
In addition to the theories I am thinking of doing some hands-on exercises to get myself familiar with JPA.

Can some one please suggest which stand alone thing will work for (I am looking for some standalone softwares to do some exercises for JPA2)

Thanks in advance


Thanks, Shiv

Which standalone "thing" are you referring to? You'll need a JPA provider and that is it.

By "Standalone" I was referring to a tool/software by which I can experiment JPA features without the help of J2EE server like Glassfish

A JPA provider is all you need.
