    Bean managed or Container managed entities use third party ORM tools???

      Hi

       

       

      While I am reading stuff on EJB3.0 it says JPA is an specification not implementation(while some times I find stuff which says it actually provides librarry for ORM and we can do the same task of ORM mapping done with Hibernate). Most of the time I see toplink or hibernate being used in persistence.xml file.

       

      I am using JBOSS application server 6.

       

      1-The question is can we use container managed persistence CMP or bean managed persistence  BMP entities without third part ORM tools to persist data to a relational DBMS???

      2-If the answer to above question is yes in case of CMP, then why it is necessary for BMP to use third party ORM tools?

      3- Can you send a link to any example code which does not use any third party ORM tool is not used.

       

       

      Thanks
