    ORM: Schema updates in productive environments with annotate

    Kai Schwebke Newbie


      what is a reasonable way of updating the DB schema in
      a productive EJB3 environment? I just don't feel comfortable using
      "update" for the hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto property not knowing
      the exact changes applied, but I would rather adapt the schema manually
      preserving and migrating existing data.

      To do this I would like to preview the required target schema, but
      does the HIBERNATE SchemaExport tool work with annotations?
      I did not find a hint in the docs.
