    seam generate-entities failure

    John Wooten Newbie

      I have a simple database table queue that has a String name, and two
      int columns, NEXT_ENTRY, and ENTRY_INC;

      When I did seam generate-entities, it created the following and then fails when trying to fetch the list of entries. It fails thinking the NEXT_ENTRY is a small blob or such. Shouldn't this be easy for Seam? It's a MySQL database and very small, etc.

      Following generated by seam generate-entities
      The name in the table is a string and the other two entries
      are ints, like 9050, and 10 ( this is in MySQL )

      It trys to treat them as Serializeable and fails somehow.
      How do I change this to use integers (i.e. provide the correct mapping)? I would think this would be straightforward for this simple table.
