Hi i'm having this kind of issue:
I'm using JBOSS AS 4.0.3 and Oracle 10g Express Database. I'm preparing a test applilcation with persistance mechanism in EJB3.
The problem is that whenever I shutdown and run the server, the database data (tables, rows etc) is overwritten with new ones, so everything that was inserted into the tables is deleted.
The second issue is that I don't want Jboss to create the database each time it gets up - I'd just like to map @Entities to the existing DB schema.
I'd be grateful for any help.
Try to change the create-table in standardjaws.xml and standardjbosssmp-jdbc.xml to false
if it doesn't work, try to open persistence.properties at ejb3-deployer\META-INF, deactivate the hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto=create-drop to #hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto=create-drop
in my case it works
