-<p>Eclipse creates a Java persistent entity for each database table. Each entity contains fields based on the table's columns. Eclipse will also generate entity relationships (such as one-to-one) based on the table constraints. <a href="#CIHJIJJC">Figure: Generating Entities from Tables</a> illustrates how Eclipse generates entities from tables.</p>
