Subject Re: OpenJPA doesn't create table in embedded DerbyDB
Date Fri, 12 Sep 2008 15:36:53 GMT
Hi Kevin,

Section 5.1 of the doc states, "If you configure OpenJPA to create the
needed database schema on startup (see Section 1.3, " Runtime Forward
Mapping "), OpenJPA must know all of your persistent classes
up-front."  I don't know specifically why this is necessary, but it
may be to prevent unwanted/unnecessary database updates due to
entities that just happen to be picked up in the classpath.

Adding the entity to your orm.xml will work without needing to specify
the MetaDataFactory property.

<entity class="com.dvelop.esb.esbruntime.service.persistenceservice.impl.openjpa.domain.Statement"/>
