<h2>About Dali</h2>
<p>
The goal of the Dali JPA Tools Project, a sub-project of the
<a href="http://www.eclipse.org/webtools">Web Tools Platform Project</a>
, is to build extensible frameworks and exemplary tools for the definition and editing of
Object-Relational (O/R) mappings for Java Persistence API (JPA) Entities. JPA mapping support will focus
on minimizing the complexity of mapping by providing creation and automated initial mapping wizards, and
programming assistance such as dynamic problem identification.

The focus of Dali is support for JPA O/R mapping which is concerned with the persistence of in memory
Java POJOs to relational databases. The title of the famous painting "The Persistence of Memory" aptly
describes the goal of the JPA specification and provides the link to the Spanish painter Salvador Dali.
