Target Date - Sept 2012
The EclipseLink project's goal is to provide a complete persistence framework that is both comprehensive and universal. It will run in any Java environment and read and write objects to virtually any type of data source, including relational databases, and XML. EclipseLink will focus on providing leading edge support, including advanced feature extensions, for the dominant persistence standards for each target data source; Java Persistence API (JPA) for relational databases, Java API for XML Binding (JAXB) for XML, Service Data Objects (SDO), and Database Web services (DBWS).

The EclipseLink Project includes ASM for the purpose of byte code weaving. The AMS library is re-packaged within the source of the project (org.persistence.eclipse.internal.libraries.asm.*) to avoid version collisions with other usage of ASM.
The source code is available within the project's subversion repository. The binaries are distributed within the eclipselink.jar and in the org.eclipse.persistence.asm_*.jar bundle.

The ANTLR library (license) is included within EclipseLink Project to enable parsing of the Java Persistence Query language (JP QL). The ANTLR library is re-packaged within the project in the org.eclipse.persistence.internal.libraries.antlr.* packages.
The source is available with the project's subversion repository. The binaries are distributed within the eclipselink.jar and in the org.eclipse.persistence.antlr_3.2.0.v*.jar bundle.
The JAXB libraries distributed under CDDL v1.0 are included within the EclipseLink Project to enable the MOXY component's implementation of JAXB.
- javax.xml.bind_2.2.0.v201105210648.jar (jaxb-api.jar)
- com.sun.xml.bind_2.2.0.v201004141950.jar (jaxb-impl.jar)

The Java Persistence API, included with EJB 3.0, is available for download from the ejb-api directory in the glassfish CVS repository.It is distributed under CDDLv1.0 . The jar is being shipped as an OSGi bundle and is required for compilation of some container based fuctionality.
EclipseLink is the Java Persistence (JPA) 2.0 Reference Implementation (JSR 317). The JPA 2.0 specification API is included in EclipseLink under the EPL and EDL licenses.
The Java Mail library (mail.jar) can be downloaded from java.sun.com under CDDL v1.0 and is included within the EclipseLink Project distribution to support Web Services attachment handling in the MOXy component. It is only required when using Java SE 5 (Java Mail is included in Java SE 6).
The Java Activation Framework (activation.jar) is distributed with the JAXB v2.2 under CDDL v1.0 and is included within the EclipseLink Project distribution to support Web Services attachment handling in the MOXy component. It is only required when using Java SE 5 (The Java Activation Framework is included in Java SE 6).
The Streaming API for XML (StAX) library (jsr173_1.0_api.jar) is distributed with the JAXB v2.2 under CDDL v1.0 and is included within the EclipseLink Project distribution as an optional XML processing approach in the MOXy component.
The Service Data Objects (SDO) API is distributed under a CDDLv1.0 and custom license. It provides the standard API implemented by the EclipseLink Project's SDO component.
The JCA 1.5 API is available for download from the connector-api directory in the glassfish CVS repository. It is distributed under CDDLv1.0 .
This jar is being shipped and required by the Workbench only. When using EclipseLink in a container where JCA integration is required that container will provide the necessary API libraries.
