Annotation Type Column


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

Is used to specify the mapped column for a persistent property or field. If no Column annotation is specified, the default values apply.

    Example 1:

    @Column(name="DESC", nullable=false, length=512)
    public String getDescription() { return description; }

    Example 2:

    @Column(name="DESC",
            columnDefinition="CLOB NOT NULL",
            table="EMP_DETAIL")
    @Lob
    public String getDescription() { return description; }

    Example 3:

    @Column(name="ORDER_COST", updatable=false, precision=12, scale=2)
    public BigDecimal getCost() { return cost; }

name

public abstract java.lang.String name
(Optional) The name of the column. Defaults to the property or field name.

Default:
""

unique

public abstract boolean unique
(Optional) Whether the column is a unique key. This is a shortcut for the UniqueConstraint annotation at the table level and is useful for when the unique key constraint corresponds to only a single column. This constraint applies in addition to any constraint entailed by primary key mapping and to constraints specified at the table level.

Default:
false

nullable

public abstract boolean nullable
(Optional) Whether the database column is nullable.

Default:
true

insertable

public abstract boolean insertable
(Optional) Whether the column is included in SQL INSERT statements generated by the persistence provider.

Default:
true

updatable

public abstract boolean updatable
(Optional) Whether the column is included in SQL UPDATE statements generated by the persistence provider.

Default:
true

columnDefinition

public abstract java.lang.String columnDefinition
(Optional) The SQL fragment that is used when generating the DDL for the column.

Defaults to the generated SQL to create a column of the inferred type.

Default:
""

table

public abstract java.lang.String table
(Optional) The name of the table that contains the column. If absent the column is assumed to be in the primary table.

Default:
""

length

public abstract int length
(Optional) The column length. (Applies only if a string-valued column is used.)

Default:
255

precision

public abstract int precision
(Optional) The precision for a decimal (exact numeric) column. (Applies only if a decimal column is used.) Value must be set by developer if used when generating the DDL for the column.

Default:
0

scale

public abstract int scale
(Optional) The scale for a decimal (exact numeric) column. (Applies only if a decimal column is used.)
