In this example I am going to tell you how to map composite primary key to entity class in your JPA Hibernate entity class. Composite primary key is a combination of two or more columns made together as a primary key. Therefore the combination of column values will be as a unique instead of having…

In this tutorial I am going to tell you what is the use of @Temporal annotation in JPA (Java Persistence API). @Temporal is a JPA annotation and generally specified only for persistent fields or properties of type java.util.Date and java.util.Calendar. Generally you use @Temporal annotation on the date or calendar field in entity classes while you…

JPA comes with a provision to create tables and populate them as per the Java classes involved in inheritance. JPA offers basically three different approaches to map hierarchical classes – classes involved in inheritance with database tables. Observe, in the above hierarchy, three classes are involved where Person is the super class and Student and…
