Subject [jira] Commented: (JDO-403) JDO2 Annotations
Date Thu, 07 Jun 2007 17:07:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JDO-403?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12502430

Andy Jefferson commented on JDO-403:

In addition to the previous addition, please update the provided Field annotation (in the
attached jar) to also include

    /** Name of the field when this is embedded in another object. */
    String embeddedFieldName() default "";

This is for use (only) when the user wants to define the field mapping for embedded fields.
To give an example of its usage

public class Computer
    @Embedded(nullIndicatorColumn="GRAPHICS_MANUFACTURER", ownerField="computer",
            @Field(embeddedFieldName="manufacturer", columns={@Column(name="GRAPHICS_MANUFACTURER")}),
            @Field(embeddedFieldName="type", columns={@Column(name="GRAPHICS_TYPE")})
    private ComputerCard graphicsCard;

public class ComputerCard
    private String manufacturer;

    private int type;

so we are defining the mapping of the columns of ComputerCard when persisted into the table
for Computer.

> It would be desirable for JDO2 to have its own set of annotations. We have developed
a set within JPOX that would likely serve as a starting point for such a set. In my opinion
they should be
> 1. Split into javax.jdo.annotations.jdo and javax.jdo.annotations.orm
> 2. Move ORM attributes from some of the JDO annotations and have a ORM annotation.
