Hi Michael,

Well in my tests JPOX *does* complain about situations of incorrectly named 
fields. Here's an example

public class Simple
    String name;

    <package name="org.jpox.test">
        <class name="Simple">
            <field name="name"/>

    <package name="org.jpox.test">
        <class name="Simple">
            <field name="name2"/>
and it gives "An exception was thrown during the operation of SchemaTool. 
Please refer to the log for full details. The following may help : 
org.jpox.metadata.InvalidMetaDataException: Class org.jpox.test.Simple has 
field org.jpox.test.Simple.name2 declared in MetaData, but this field doesnt 
exist in the class!"
