Hello, Why is JPA included in the list of ORM tools in this article? JPA is a specification it is not a ORM tool/ framework.
Follow Up Question/Clarity: My Question is based specifically on the comparison between JQuery5 and Spring5 with its 7 Features (or Spring4 with its 5 Feautres). jQuery5 has 11 Features that which I feel there are most powerful. I did proper investigative discovery not just counting.

Yes, I do agree with you. The Basics of C++ (OOPL/Object-Oriented Design/Model) and then followed by proper skill (relevant expertise) in the usage of JQuery Features, could help anyone in mastering any Framework. I’m still mummed why many people use Spring Framework than JQuery (DOM tree) Framework, even though JQuery demonstrates to be easier to use (user-friendly) with its powerful features and had been availabe on the Market maybe even prior to the Spring Framework’s release. Could you elaborate maybe if I missed the power of Spring Framework with its 5 Features that might make it so powerful??
