From Why Use JPA or ORM?

Reasons for ORM

*Leverages large persistence library to avoid developing solutions to problems that others have already solved.
*Avoids low level JDBC and SQL code.
*Leverages object oriented programming and object model usage.
*Provides database and schema independence.
*Most ORM products are free and open source.
*Many enterprise corporations provide support and services for ORM products.
*Provides high end performance features such as caching and sophisticated database and query optimizations.

Reasons for JPA

*It is a standard and part of EJB3 and JEE.
* Many free and open source products with enterprise level support.
*Portability across application servers and persistence products (avoids vendor lock-in).
*A usable and functional specification.
*Supports both JEE and JSE.

Most of the points above directly/indirectly help improve manageability

CRUD like opertaions can be taken care entitymanager hig level api, no need to write basic queries, m:n relationships can be managed via configuration, check out query generated for these associations .. its cumbersome to write and maintain in JDBC ..
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
