Strange annotation - @EmbeddableSuperClass

Hello dear ranchers!
I have read O'Reilly book, and then started read specs. I've found @EmbeddableSuperClass annotation in 2.1.9.3 paragraph.
Behaviour of this annotation is exactly like @MappedSuperClass, and I don't see @EmbeddableSuperClass in Java EE packages.
Could anyone explain this moment? Thanks.

A quick search on the EJB specifications has this statement in EJB Persistence spec:

A.4 Changes since public draft:
Renamed EmbeddableSuperclass as MappedSuperclass.

I'd take this to mean that the EmbeddableSuperclass annotation is no longer available in Final specification, so you'll only need to know MappedSuperclass.

Thanks a lot.
But I have only A1-A3 in my spec (from SCBCD links). Could you give me direct link for your spec?

Hi Max,

I'm using EJB3 Persistence Version 3.0 Final Release May 2, 2006. I'm pretty sure I got it from this link which is the same as the SCBCD link:

http://jcp.org/aboutJava/communityprocess/final/jsr220/index.html

Are you sure you're referencing the Java Persistence API PDF file ? I notice the EJB Code Specs PDF file only has appendices A1 - A3.
