Enum EntityIdentifierNature

    • Enum Constant Detail

      • SIMPLE

        public static final EntityIdentifierNature SIMPLE
        A simple identifier. Resolved as a basic type and mapped to a singular, basic attribute. Equivalent of:
        • an <id/> mapping
        • a single @Id annotation

        public static final EntityIdentifierNature NON_AGGREGATED_COMPOSITE
        What Hibernate used to term an "embedded composite identifier", which is not to be confused with the JPA term "embedded". Resolved as a tuple of basic type values and mapped over multiple singular attributes. More precisely, a composite identifier where there is no single attribute representing the composite value.

        Equivalent to:

        • a <composite-id/> mapping without a specified name XML-attribute (which would name the single identifier attribute, if it were specified), or
        • multiple @Id annotations.

        May or may not have a related "lookup identifier class" as indicated by an @IdClass annotation.

        public static final EntityIdentifierNature AGGREGATED_COMPOSITE
        Composite identifier mapped to a single entity attribute by means of an actual component class used to aggregate the tuple values. Equivalent of:
        • a <composite-id/> mapping naming a single identifier attribute via the name XML-attribute
        • an @EmbeddedId annotation

      • values

        public static EntityIdentifierNature[] values()
        Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
        for (EntityIdentifierNature c : EntityIdentifierNature.values())
        an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
      • valueOf

        public static EntityIdentifierNature valueOf​(String name)
        Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
        name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
        the enum constant with the specified name
        IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
        NullPointerException - if the argument is null
