Subject Mapping
Date Fri, 10 Nov 2006 12:19:31 GMT
1. The reverse mapping tool creates an orm.xml but not annotations on 
generated Java code. Any plans on this?

2. I fed an orm.xml to Hibernate 3. It works, but if Hibernate is clever 
enough to automatically translate between camelCase Java names and 
underscore-punctuated database names, it's beyond my limited skill. I 
had to manually insert name elements into the orm.xml for complex table 
and column definitions to make it function. It's good that openjpa is 
smarter than that, but on the whole, I think I'd prefer the more 
complete orm definition - or at least an option for it. For one thing, 
I'm not sure what the implications are when people start meddling with 
the generated items and define a situation where there's no simple 
algorithmic conversion between Java name and the database name.
