Scala + Guice + Gradle: JPA 2 & EclipseLink (Part 4)

Previously I showed you how to create a Singleton in Guice powered Scala project. In this article I will show you how you can (JPA 2) EclipseLink support.

This sample app is a console app, so we have to handle entity management ourselves.

<persistence version="2.0"

<property name="eclipselink.orm.throw.exceptions" value="true" />


package me.m1key.audioliciousmigration.persistence
import javax.persistence.EntityManager
import javax.persistence.EntityManagerFactory
import javax.persistence.Persistence

class JpaPersistenceProvider extends PersistenceProvider {

 private var factory: EntityManagerFactory = _
 private var entityManager: EntityManager = _

 def initialise: Unit = {
   factory = Persistence.createEntityManagerFactory("audioliciousPu")
   entityManager = factory.createEntityManager();


 def getEntityManager: EntityManager = {
   return entityManager

 def close: Unit = {



val persistenceProvider = injector.getInstance(classOf[PersistenceProvider])
val entityManager = persistenceProvider.getEntityManager




repositories {
    // ...
    mavenRepo name: "EclipseLink", url: "http://download.eclipse.org/rt/eclipselink/maven.repo/"

dependencies {
    compile group: 'me.m1key.audiolicious', name: 'audiolicious-domain-objects', version: '0.1.0-SNAPSHOT'
    compile group: 'org.eclipse.persistence', name: 'eclipselink', version: '2.3.0'
    compile group: 'org.eclipse.persistence', name: 'javax.persistence', version: '2.0.0'
    compile group: 'mysql', name: 'mysql-connector-java', version: '5.1.18'
    // …
We needed to explicitly add EclipseLink specific repository.


I did not present any entities here because in my app they come from another Java powered project. In the next article I will show you how to integration test this code.

The development of artificial intelligence (AI) has propelled more programming architects, information scientists, and different experts to investigate the plausibility of a vocation in machine learning. Notwithstanding, a few newcomers will in general spotlight a lot on hypothesis and insufficient on commonsense application. machine learning projects for final year In case you will succeed, you have to begin building machine learning projects in the near future.
