 Description  « Hide
We currently insist on PK fields being in the root persistable. With some JPA usage people may want to have a MappedSuperclass with no PK fields and define them further down, in the root *concrete* class.

SVN trunk now has the concept in metadata of a class being "instantiable", and has convenience methods to return the root instantiable class in an inheritance tree etc.
