BEA to open-source SolarMetric kodo – EJB 3 Persistence APIs for free

BEA is announcing a plan to open-source SolarMetric Kodo, the JDO/EJB3 based persistence engine that they recently acquired under the project called Open JPA. Open JPA will open source a significant portion of the Kodo code base including the Kodo kernel and the reference implementation of the EJB 3 Persistence specification. Once the EJB 3 specification is approved, Open JPA will be an open source implementation of the EJB 3 Persistence standard under an Apache software license.
