Marc Logemann commented on OPENJPA-1541:
----------------------------------------

I just wanted to migrate to OpenJPA 2.0.1 but this missing feature hindered me. Did it really
got lost?

> Enums work as primary keys in TopLink and EclipseLink. DataNucleus supports them, too:
> http://www.datanucleus.org/products/accessplatform/jpa/primary_key.html
> It would be good to also include this in the specification because, not to support type
safety in primary keys is fairly sad.
> Enum is a basic language feature, and most applications would enjoy significant benefits
by mapping the keys of those little system behavior controlling lookup tables to enums.
> Consider a payment_type table. One can only generate the IDs of the table and use them
for switching safely when the ids are mapped to enums. Any such application would typically
have a PaymentType enum anyway.
