    Q about Bill Burke's blog about determning persistent fields

    Marcel Overdijk Newbie

      In Bill Burke's blog on http://jboss.org/jbossBlog/blog/?month=7&year=2004 he mentions the entity bean deployer determines which fields are persistent.

      I'm wondering if the functionality to determine, can be used in an application. In other words I like to have an API to retrieve 'metadata' (columns, type, column length etc.) from my entity beans.

      This would make it possible to easily create dynamic CRUD screens which can be used in prototyping.
