-<p>An entity <span class="italic">can be</span>:</p>
-<ul>
-<li>
-<p>Abstract or concrete classes. Entities may also extend non-entity classes as well as entity classes, and non-entity classes may extend entity classes.</p>
-</li>
-</ul>
-<p>An entity <span class="italic">must have</span>:</p>

-<p><a id="sthref74" name="sthref74"></a><a id="sthref75" name="sthref75"></a><a id="sthref76" name="sthref76"></a>Each persistent entity must be mapped to a database table and contain a primary key. Persistent entities are identified by the <code>@Entity</code> annotation.</p>
-<p>Use this procedure to add persistence to an existing entity:</p>
+<h1>Synchronizing classes</h1>
+<p>As you work with the classes in your Java project, you will need to update the <code>persistence.xml</code> file to reflect the changes. <a id="sthref104" name="sthref104"></a><a id="sthref105" name="sthref105"></a><a id="sthref106" name="sthref106"></a></p>
+<p>Use this procedure to synchronize the <code>persistence.xml</code> file:</p>
<ol>
<li>
-<p>Open the Java class in the <span class="gui-object-title">Project Explorer.</span></p>
-</li>
-<li>
-<p>Select the class in the JPA Structure view.</p>
-</li>
-<li>
-<p>In the JPA Details view, click the mapping type hyperlink to access the Mapping Type Selection dialog. In the following figure, clicking <span class="italic">entity</span> invokes the dialog from the JPA Details View.</p>
