Is JPA 1.0 a viable option?

Seems there are so many short comings and limitations in version 1.0 of the specification that makes it impossible to use with bigger databases, which isn't necessarily modeled according to the limited number of options supported by JPA 1.0?

So is JPA 1.0 a viable option for bigger enterprise projects? 100 developers 300-500 tables?

Well, the spec itself may be limited, but JPA Vendors usually provided extensions to handle cases not covered by the spec. I think you should look at the various JPA implementations and see what extensions they provide.

I have. However, if you use the extensions then the "interchangable implementation"-argument is gone. You might as well just choose a ORM vendor and use them for all its worth, as long as you are using vendor specific extensions anyway.
