Difference between JPA and hibernate

Java Persistence API (JPA) is a standardized API for persistence in Java.

Hibernate is an implementation of JPA, as well as OpenJPA is another JPA implementation. Each implementation has specific features to extend the JPA functionalities.

JPA is a spec and not an implementation, so if you choose JPA, you still have to pick an implementation. You can pick Hibernate, Toplink, and any other ORM that implements JPA.
