This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I am a fresh graduate and currently studying for an upcoming project. The task is convert a set of XSD docs through JAXB to corresponding Java specs. Also generate the correct SQL table definitions. So the topics I am studying now are JAXB and JPA, decided I will be using eclipseLink and I have it all set up. What I don't understand is the workflow. From what I understood, it's
xsd -> jaxb classes -> annotate(JPA) -> database
I can now generate JAXB classes from an example XSD but I don't know what to do from there. I have read about generating JPA classes from a database but I don't have any resources on doing the reverse. Help would be appreciated
