In a JSE Module Suite Project the Java Persitence API cannot be used. In the
"New File" dialog the "Persistence" category is not offered (in oposition to a
Java Class Library Project where this category is provided). If in a Module
Suite Project a persistent entity is created manually (write a new class, use
the @Entity annotation etc.) the editor shows the warning "The project doesn't
contain a persistent unit" even if the "META-INF/persistence.xml" file exists.
could you please specify which build of netbeans do you use?
NetBeans IDE 5.5 (Build 200610171010, C/C++Pack 20061123, EntPack 20061020)
Hi reporter, I guess you mean NetBeans Plug-in Module Suite project, right? In
this project JPA support isn't implemented for NetBeans 5.5. We track this as
enhancement for support JPA there for next release.
Yes, its a NetBeans Plug-in Module Suite project. For which "next
release" (5.5.1 or 6.0) is support planned?
I believe blaha was referring to 6.0.
This is rather an enhancement, so changing.
