In a nutshell, Vaadin JPAContainer is a Vaadin Container implementation for binding Vaadin user interface components directly to Java objects persisted using the Java Persistence API.
Adding support for leading JPA2.0 implementations to Vaadin JPAContainer add-on was one of the most voted feature last year. Feature Votes given by Pro Account users influenced our decision to start working on new version of JPAContainer and once we got started we added other features too. Our focus was in minimizing the effort needed to bind UI components with data model. Check out add-on JPAContainer home page for list of improvements.
