Can you anyone suggest how can we use JPA in Project, as it is just specification not implementation like Hibernate or Toplink?

You can use JPA the same way you can use JSP, Servlets or EJB.
The specification defines the interface/contract and the developers implement those specifications. Tomcat implements JSP and Servlets specifications. Hibernate and TopLink implement the JPA specification.
