Hi,
AFAIK Spring provides a mechanism to rename the persistence.xml however I am wondering is this possible with just JPA.
so say, I want to call persistence.xml mypersistence.xml - is this possible?

Note the reason I need to do this is because when deployed in WebSphere, it automatically parses the persistence.xml and I don't want it to. Because I am not using Websphere JPA.
Thanks.

JPA requires the file be named persistence.xml,

If you are using EclipseLink, you can set the persistence unit property "eclipselink.persistencexml" to give the path to the file. You can either pass this property in your properties Map, or set it as a system property.
