Hi all,

I have a problem am still learning Spring MVC and JPA. I can't figure out how to select column names using either EntityManager or JP QL.
What I want is to get the column names of a table and pass them to my success view so that I can display them in a table format as headings. I want for this functionality to
be generic if possible.I'm using Spring MVC and JPA with TopLink Essentials as the persistence provider. Here's some of my code in the onSubmit() method:

This is a JPA question, so moving this to the ORM forum.

Column names? Are the property names of your object not more appropriate? Why do you want to map a relational model to and object model if you are displaying the relational model?
