Subject Re: persistent entities names
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2011 21:02:08 GMT
Primarily because the static final strings are assigned to a $propertyName variable value in
the template... and so are the strings in readProperty and writeProperty.  Since it's an auto-generated
class, there isn't much point to using the static string declarations in the read/write properties.
The static variables are there as a convenience to user-code, so you don't have to hard-code
the property names (and you get to utilize code completion in your IDE), a convenience that
I greatly miss when using hibernate. :)
