Subject Re: How to set the type of the DB-field using @Externalizer

You shouldn't need the @Type annotation -- the type will be inferred  
from the return type of the externalizer method.  Are you dropping  
the database table in between attempts?  It's possible that if your  
first attempt resulted in a byte array column because of some  
misconfiguration, OpenJPA will think it is supposed to reuse that  
column on subsequent mapping attempts, because technically it can fit  
anything in a byte-array column.
