MapKeyColumn.name - JPA annotation element

Annotation Element
javax.persistence.MapKeyColumn
String name

(Optional) The name of the map key column. The table in which it is found depends upon the context. If the map key is for an element collection, the map key column is in the collection table for the map value. If the map key is for a ManyToMany entity relationship or for a OneToMany entity relationship using a join table, the map key column is in a join table. If the map key is for a OneToMany entity relationship using a foreign key mapping strategy, the map key column is in the table of the entity that is the value of the map.

Defaults to the concatenation of the following: the name of the referencing relationship field or property; "_"; "KEY".
