    Mixing annotations at field/setters

    Alexander Langer Newbie


      I don't know wether this is a bug or required by the spec. However, I couldn't figure how to file it into JIRA as an unregistered user, and JIRA wouldn't let me register as a new user, so I have to post it here.

      If you make differences in how you annotate the fields in
      I have this simple class:

      public class BlaPK
       implements Serializable {
       private Long id;
       private Integer type = TYPE_UNSPECIFIED;
       public Long getId() {
       return id;
       public void setId(Long id) {
       this.id = id;
       public Integer getType() {
       return type;
       public void setType(Integer type) {
       this.type = type;
      public class Foo implements Serializable {
       private Long id;
       private BlaPK bla;
       // getters and setts for id/bla

      JBoss will throw a "duplicate column id" error for class Foo. It doesn't seem to see the @Column name override in the @Embeddable class which are set on the getters.

      This used to work in JBoss 4.0.3SP1. However, in 4.0.4RC1 I have to move the annotations in the BlaPK class to the fields as well. I have the impression JBoss makes a lookup for class Foo and sees field-wise annotations, and hence doesn't recognize the annocations at the functions when it inspects the @Embedded class.

      I don't know if this required by the spec, if not, take this as a bug report (and again, sorry for not filing in JIRA).
