JPA Configuration without persistance.xml

2012-11-15 09:16



I've been using Hibernate with JPA, and found it too slow, so am moving my project to use ObjectDB. My Jar is being held inside another application, so I don't want to have to rely on a persistance.xml file being in a particular place. When using Hibernate, I was able to do the following:

org.hibernate.cfg.AnnotationConfiguration config  = new AnnotationConfiguration();
org.hibernate.SessionFactory factory = config.buildSessionFactory();

Is it possible to do the equivalent thing with ObjectDB?


Thanks very much,

When using ObjectDB the persistence.xml is file optional.

Just annotate the classes and use them.

Please read carefully the posting instructions - before posting to the ObjectDB website.

  • You may have to disable pop up blocking in order to use the toolbar (e.g. in Chrome).
  • Use ctrl + right click to open the browser context menu in the editing area (e.g. for using a browser spell checker).
  • To insert formatted lines (e.g. Java code, stack trace) - select a style in the toolbar and then insert the text in the new created block.
  • Avoid overflow of published source code examples by breaking long lines.
  • You may mark in paragraph code words (e.g. class names) with the code style (can be applied by ctrl + D).
  • Long stack traces (> 50 lines) and complex source examples (> 100 lines) should be posted as attachments.
