-<p><a id="sthref79" name="sthref79"></a><a id="sthref80" name="sthref80"></a>An <span class="bold">Embedded</span> class is a class whose instances are stored as part of an owning entity; it shares the identity of the owning entity. Each field of the embedded class is mapped to the database table associated with the owning entity.</p>
-<p>To override the mapping information for a specific subclass, use the <code>@AttributeOverride</code> annotation for that specific class.</p>

+<h1>Creating an orm.xml file</h1>
+<p><a id="sthref116" name="sthref116"></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>
