<h1>Creating an orm.xml file</h1>
<p><a id="sthref157" name="sthref157"></a>If you opt not to create an <code>orm.xml</code> file when you create a JPA project, you can create one using the <a href="reference007.htm#CIAIJCCE">Create ORM Mapping File wizard</a>.</p>
<p>Use this procedure to create an <code>orm.xml</code> file:</p>
<ol>
<li>
<p>From the Navigator or Project Explorer, select <span class="bold">File &gt; New &gt; Other</span>. The Select a Wizard dialog appears.</p>
<div class="figure"><a id="sthref158" name="sthref158"></a>
<p class="titleinfigure">The Select a Wizard Dialog</p>
<img src="img/select_a_wizard_mapping.png" alt="The Select a Wizard dialog with Mapping file selected." title="The Select a Wizard dialog with Mapping file selected." /><br /></div>
<!-- class="figure" --></li>
<li>
<p>Select <span class="bold">JPA ORM Mapping File</span> and then click <span class="bold">Next</span>. The Mapping File page of the <a href="reference007.htm#CIAIJCCE">Create ORM Mapping File wizard</a> appears.</p>
<p>If you are using EclipseLink, you can select <span class="bold">EclipseLink &gt; EclipseLink ORM Mapping File</span>.</p>
<div class="figure"><a id="sthref159" name="sthref159"></a>
<p class="titleinfigure">New Mapping File Location Page</p>
<img src="img/mapping_file_new.png" alt="The Mapping File page." title="The Mapping File page." /><br /></div>
<!-- class="figure" --></li>
<li>
<p>Select the name and location of your mapping file and click <span class="bold">Next</span>. The <a href="reference009.htm#CACDFCDB">Mapping File Options</a> page appears.</p>
<div class="figure"><a id="sthref160" name="sthref160"></a>
<p class="titleinfigure">New Mapping File Options Page</p>
<img src="img/new_mapping_file_options.png" alt="New Mapping File Options Page" title="New Mapping File Options Page" /><br /></div>
<!-- class="figure" --></li>
<li>
<p>Define the properties in the <a href="reference009.htm#CACDFCDB">Mapping File Options</a> page and click <span class="bold">Finish</span>. The <code>orm.xml</code> file appears in the <code>src</code> directory of the selected JPA project. You can manage the <code>orm.xml</code> file using the JPA Details view or through the XML Editor. See also <a href="ref_details_orm.htm#CACGDGHC">JPA Details view (for orm.xml)</a>.</p>
