Basic mapping

Use a Basic Mapping to map an attribute directly to a database column. Basic mappings may be used only with the following attribute types:

To create a basic mapping:

  1. In the JPA Structure view, right-click the field to map. Select Map As > Basic. The JPA Details view (for attributes) displays the properties for the selected field.

    JPA Details, Basic mapping

    PA Details, Basic mapping
  2. Complete each field in the Basic Mapping area.

  3. Complete the remaining areas in the JPA Details view (for attributes).

Eclipse adds the following annotations to the field:

@Column(name="<COLUMN_NAME>", table="<COLUMN_TABLE>", 
    insertable=<INSERTABLE>, updatable=<UPDATABLE>)
@Basic(fetch=FetchType.<FETCH_TYPE>, optional = <OPTIONAL>)
