Hi,

Does anybody has a clue what the Auction Application is ? ( From the JPA exam topics ...)

I have found only this link ... java.sun.com/developer/onlineTraining/Programming/JDCBook/code.html

Thanks,

Liviu

Howdy !

The Auction Application is a JPA sample application used in Oracle's course: Building Database Driven Applications with JPA. It's used for demonstration purposes.

Unfortunately, it's available only for those who take this course, it's not available for free download.

The good news is that Enthuware has similar Toy Application for JPA application which demonstrates different kinds of JPA 2.0 aspects (mappings, relationships, inheritance, collections, query builder, etc.). The ToyAppForJPA was written for Hibernate persistence provider (and Maven ?), I needed to make some minor modifications to run it on EclipseLink persistence provider in NetBeans 7.1. But it worked pretty well - the RDBMS was used Derby Java DB (bundled with JDK since Java SE 6).

Best regards,
MZ

I know the Toy Application for JPA from enthuware ( I also bought their mocks).
The strange thing is that Oracle requires to know the Auction Application which is included only in one paid course.
This means that I cannot prepare for the exam without paying for that course. Correct ?


Thank you,
Liviu

Taking this course from Oracle and knowledge of Auction Application is not critical for 1Z0-898. In "Pro JPA 2.0" all samples are much more detailed and verbose than in Auction Application (you can use source code for the book from Apress web site).

As I read from the Oracle web site, as Exam Topics :


Introducing the Auction Application:
- Describe the auction application
- Define the domain objects of the auction application
- Describe the implementation model for the auction system


Reading the exam topics I will expect direct questions regarding this application....

Have I correctly understood ?

I recently took the 1Z0-898 and did not see any Auction domain specific questions. Questions not based on some single domain (Auctions or Employee or whatever), so don't worry
