This tutorial demonstrates setting up Java Persistence API for Java SE 7 desktop applications in NetBeans 7. The Java Persistence API (JPA) provides an object/relational mapping facility for managing relational data in Java applications. JPA is a lightweight, POJO-based (Plain Old Java Objects) framework for object-relational mapping. The mapping between Java objects and a relational database is done using annotations and/or XML deployment descriptors. Though JPA is a part of EJB 3 Specification it can be used in Java SE applications, outside of the Java EE environment .
