How is "persistence setup" statement supposed to be used ?

nicolas duminil Apprentice



Trying to use Forge in JBDS 5.0. The "documentation" says that, in order to setup the persistence provider one should use the following command:


$ persistence setup --provider {your JPA implementation} --container {your container}


What "{your JPA implementation}" and "{your container}" is supposed to be ? Are they constants ? If yes, what are the acceptable values ? The quickstart is showing the following example:


persistence setup --provider HIBERNATE --container JBOSS_AS7 ;


While I understand what HIBERNATE means, even if I don't know hos to specify hibernate 3 or 4, I don't know how to specify another JPA provider, for example Toplink. Also, what container is supposed to mean ? For example, what is ne supposed to use for JBoss EAP 6.0 ?


Also, the documentation says:


"you can also specify additional connection parameters such as JNDI data-source names, JDBC connection information, and data-source types"


Very interesting ! And how ? Is one supposed to guess ? That's crazy that people release completely undocumented software !


Many thanks anyway to anyone for any help.


Kind regards,
