    • ManyToOne
    • MappedSuperclass
    • OneToMany
    • OneToOne
    • Table
    • TableGenerator
    • Transient
  • Entity Defaults assistance
    • Ability to see what the default selection is for a given value
  • Entity Validation
    • Entity compliance problems(example - No Id defined)
    • Defaults based problems(example - default column name is not on the table defined by the entity)


M1 Iteration 1: New and Noteworthy

  • Basic support for ManyToMany mapping - does not support multiple JoinColumns
  • Support for SequenceGenerator and TableGenerator
  • Support for Version annotation
  • Support for AttributeOverrides in Entities and Embeddeds
  • Utilization of Generics information in mapping info
  • Ability to specify any DB Schema to map to from your chosen connection
  • Unified on the PFD version of the spec (with exception of a name change for GeneratorType to GenerationType; this will be fixed in an early M1I2 build)
    • Among other things, this accounts for the removal of AccessType from the annotation based definition- AccessType is now determined by where applicable annotations are placed.
  • String based OrderBy support

M1 (Iteration 2): New and Noteworthy

  • Basic support for Entity generation from Tables (Reverse Engineering)
    • Does not yet support generation of 1-M or M-M associations; this is scheduled for phase 2 in M2
  • DDL Generation from Entities (Forward Engineering)
  • Bug fixes and various minor enhancements
