  • Course Java Data Access with JPA : Content

    In the course Java Data Access with JPA Object Relational Mapping with the Java Persistence API 2.x is on the agenda.

    JPA Architecture

    After an overview of the data access capabilities in Java, including JDBC, and the challenge they face, the basic concepts and architecture of the JPA is explained. The role of the Entity Manager and the persistence.xml configuration file is discussed.


    The next topic covers the concept of a JPA Entity, the lifecycle of Entities and how Entity classes are mapped to database tables. Also the various states Entities can have in relation to the database such as new, persistent, detached and removed are discussed in this respect as is the concept of merging.


    Furthermore the use of annotations and XML mapping files and the role the various properties and attributes play is explained.

    JPA Queries

    The various key generation strategies are discussed as well as the mapping of association relationships and the mapping of inheritance relationships between Entities. Next the possibilities of the JPA Query language, JPQL, are covered and the uses of JPA criteria and native SQL queries.


    The function and operation of Entity callbacks that are called immediately before and after the execution of a persistence operation is explained and the alternative use of Entity Listener classes as well.


    Part of the course program is also the treatment of interceptors which are used for crosscutting concerns like logging and security. Finally, attention is paid to the use of JPA in a Java EE application, how to interact with EJBs and the method of packaging JPA entities.


    Finally JPA transactions are addressed in both a desktop environment and a Java EE environment.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
