Subject Re: Get primary key from persistent bean
Date Tue, 12 Dec 2006 02:03:20 GMT
Hi Dain,

I've never seen an @Entity without an @Id annotation. I don't believe  
it is a valid JPA mapping without an @Id. That said, it's not  
required to be named Id.

So are you writing a framework or sample code? For a framework, it  
would be nice to be portable. For sample code, who cares?
