hi ... do you have restartet jboss while looking for your database entries ?
No, I had JBoss running in one window while mysql was running in another. After every create I looked in mysql to see if it worked - and it did.
But when I close down JBoss (cleanly or otherwise) the data in the database disappears along with table!
Thanks for the help, I got the answer when I posted a slightly different question...
in my jbosscmp-jdbc.xml file.
Thanks in for your help anyway!
