I have a question regarding "Field based persistence in JPA"
I was going through Field bases persisetnce concept in EJB 3 in action book. It says that "declare all data fields public or package protected" in field based persisetnce.
what happens to the private instance variables/fields. Are they persisted to the database, if Field based access is used..
If private variables are not persisted, then why do we need @Transient annotation.
