Subject Re: Alternatives to annotations for metadata?
Date Thu, 05 Feb 2009 15:37:28 GMT

Hi Philip,

  > Couldn't there be an orm-openjpa.xml that mirrored orm.xml, adding
vendor metadata?

Yes, possible. Some discussion took place on this issue [1] but the thread
is not currently active. Adding a name-value under a <vendor-extension> tag
in orm.xsd perhaps would have been a straightforward route. I will check
with the JPA Expert Group to ascertain the response to such a request. 
Having a mirrored 'orm-openjpa.xml' would require to match/merge tags for
the same entity, require overwriting rules etc. Doable but non-trivial.
