OpenJPA Build time Enhancement & Maven dependencies, persistence.xml
posted 3 years ago
Thought I'd try this here because you generally get responses quicker than at the actual products forums.
I'm starting to work on a new project that is broken up into separate Maven projects. (Bear w/ me, not THAT familiar w/ Maven yet.) The web project will be built with dependencies to one or more projects containing entity objects. It is clear from the documentation that you can specify paths to classes that you want enhanced at build time.
But if I understand correctly, it will also do enhancement on classes in your persistent class list, which should also include ones in jars specified in persistence.xml w/ jar-file*.
1) I'm not sure if that is ONLY when you don't specify anything in the POM.
2) Primarily, I'm not sure how to specify the path of the jar in persistence.xml
I'm sure I'm not trying to do something that is uncommon. So basically what I need to do is enhance entities pulled in as dependencies to a project configured for OpenJPA.
