[JPA - Hibernate] Mapping Enum to Column

I have an Enum:



And then I have the following Entity class:



In order for the productAttributeFormType to just have its value in a column is it as simple as:

@Column(name="FormType")
private ProductAttributeFormType productAttributeFormType;

Or is there more to it?

Thanks,

Ran across this. A bit more to it than I though but makes sense.

On further inspection, I'm not sure that will work for my use case. So still looking for answers.

Ok, after some testing, this appears to work...

@Enumerated(value = EnumType.STRING)
private ProductAttributeType productAttributeType;

Yes, that's the way
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
