I'm new to ejb, and trying to use @NamedQuery.
When you declare @NamedQuery (using annotations, not XML), do you have to declare it on an @Entity class ?

I mean:

I couldn't get the second example to work.
I even tried declaring the NotEntityClass in persistence.xml, but it didn't work - maybe I did it wrong ?
<class>somePackage.NotAnEntity<class>

Is there some way to make it work ?
Thank you.

Sol,
@NamedQuery does need to be declared on an @Entity class. As you noted, the alternative is to put it in XML.

As I recall, it goes in the orm.xml file. For example:
