My database does not get created
Hibernate will not create the database for you, you have to manually create a database. You don't need to create the tables and other database schema parts. That's done by hibernate.
Hibernate drops my database when the application stops
This is probably the hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto property in the cdo-server.xml, change it from 'create-drop' to 'update'.
JPA Annotations in the model are not picked up by Teneo
To make the JPA annotations in the model visible you need to regenerate the java code. EMF creates the in-memory ecore package using the generated java code (depends on a configuration setting) and not the original ecore file.
Make sure that:
- the annotations xml file is copied to the output path, it should be explicitly flagged in the build.properties in the bin.includes/binary build part
- the plugin which contains the annotations xml should depends on the org.eclipse.emf.cdo.server.hibernate.teneo plugin
