If the entity is associated with multiple tables, you should use a version mapping only with the primary table. You should have only a single version mapping per persistent entity. Version mappings may be used only with the following attribute types:</p>
<p><code>short, Short</code></p>
<p><code>long, Long</code></p>
<p>To create a version mapping:</p>
<ol start="1">
<p>In the <a href="ref_persistence_outline.htm#BABEGGFE">JPA Structure view</a>, select the field to map. The <a href="ref_persistence_map_view.htm#BABIFBAF">JPA Details view (for attributes)</a> displays the properties for the selected.</p>
<p>In the <span class="gui-object-title">Map As</span> field, select <span class="gui-object-action">Version</span>.</p>
<p>Use this table to complete the remaining fields in the JPA Details view.</p>
