Annotation Type Basic


@Target(value={METHOD,FIELD})
@Retention(value=RUNTIME)
public @interface Basic

The simplest type of mapping to a database column. The Basic annotation can be applied to a persistent property or instance variable of any of the following types: Java primitive types, wrappers of the primitive types, String, java.math.BigInteger, java.math.BigDecimal, java.util.Date, java.util.Calendar, java.sql.Date, java.sql.Time, java.sql.Timestamp, byte[], Byte[], char[], Character[], enums, and any other type that implements java.io.Serializable.

The use of the Basic annotation is optional for persistent fields and properties of these types. If the Basic annotation is not specified for such a field or property, the default values of the Basic annotation will apply.

    Example 1:

    @Basic
    protected String name;

    Example 2:

    @Basic(fetch=LAZY)
    protected String getName() { return name; }

 

Since:
Java Persistence 1.0

If not specified, defaults to EAGER.

Default:
javax.persistence.FetchType.EAGER

public abstract boolean optional
