I'll queue up a softball. Stored procs exist, and JPA 2.1 add first class support via @NamedStoredProcedureQuery.
As an aside, the promotional pricing of $2.99 for the Kindle version of the book on Amazon is a great deal.
Thanks for including these tips: How to map an enum to a column and How to use a generated UUID as a primary key.

Forgot my own question. Are you still seeing new implementations leverage this -- obviously could -- or are folks mostly using as a bridge during application modernization initiatives? I was surprised to see that beefed up with 2.1.
stored procedures are still used. Databases handle large datasets very efficiently. So it can make sense to use a stored procedure to perform a very data-heavy operation which just returns the result instead of selecting thousands of records and processing them in the Java tier.
