Subject Re: Identity Problem with MappedSuperclass
Date Thu, 05 Jul 2007 14:11:12 GMT

We have test cases that demonstrate that distinct subtypes of a
@MappedSuperclass can share the same ID value [1], so the behavior
you're expecting should be possible in the general sense. Our test
case doesn't use GenerationType.IDENTITY, though.

Can you post the exception that you're seeing and the corresponding SQL log?
