Subject Re: Find by primary key does not return the real type of a record but instance of the type passed as parameter

Thanks for sending the Channel base class.  The problem is actually  
very simple, and is explained here: 

See the note about discriminator columns.  The bottom line is that  
when you use single-table inheritance mapping (as you do in your  
Channel hierarchy), OpenJPA doesn't automatically add a discriminator  
column when mapping the base class, because it would be a waste if  
you never add subclasses.  So you have to give OpenJPA some hint that  
you plan on subclassing the base class.  The note in the docs above  
give various ways of providing the necessary hint.

p.s. While these are Kodo docs, they apply fully to OpenJPA, which  
Kodo is built on.  Unfortunately we haven't posted official OpenJPA  
docs yet.
