Annotation Type PrimaryKeyJoinColumn


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

Specifies a primary key column that is used as a foreign key to join to another table.

It is used to join the primary table of an entity subclass in the JOINED mapping strategy to the primary table of its superclass; it is used within a SecondaryTable annotation to join a secondary table to a primary table; and it may be used in a OneToOne mapping in which the primary key of the referencing entity is used as a foreign key to the referenced entity.

If no PrimaryKeyJoinColumn annotation is specified for a subclass in the JOINED mapping strategy, the foreign key columns are assumed to have the same names as the primary key columns of the primary table of the superclass.


    Example: Customer and ValuedCustomer subclass

    @Entity
    @Table(name="CUST")
    @Inheritance(strategy=JOINED)
    @DiscriminatorValue("CUST")
    public class Customer { ... }
    
    @Entity
    @Table(name="VCUST")
    @DiscriminatorValue("VCUST")
    @PrimaryKeyJoinColumn(name="CUST_ID")
    public class ValuedCustomer extends Customer { ... }

name

public abstract java.lang.String name
(Optional) The name of the primary key column of the current table.

Defaults to the same name as the primary key column of the primary table of the superclass (JOINED mapping strategy); the same name as the primary key column of the primary table (SecondaryTable mapping); or the same name as the primary key column for the table for the referencing entity (OneToOne mapping).

Default:
