Of course you pick the easy case to illustrate :) A single entity
nothing but basic attributes or self-referential associations is going to
be relatively simple. The trickier stuff is adding 2 entities with
association between them, "property-ref" FKs, etc. Then your fluent API is
not so fluent.
Yeah, I just made up something quickly to ignite the discussion. I also
expect it to be more complex when done completely.
Overall I can see the utility of this but:
1. I'm not sure your intention here with exposing this from Session,
but a huge -1 to in any way allowing this even after the SessionFactory is
Ah, I knew I'd get that wrong ;)
I just meant to illustrate there's *some* entry point into the API, full
ack it should be on the SF/EMF level of course.
1. Related to this, I can definitely see exposing this to build the
boot-time model as in the org.hibernate.mapping package - but not so much
the runtime model. Ultimately as we move to Jandex for describing the
boot-time model specifically I can see this API building those structures.
2. Not a high priority for me. In fact between 6 and then the Jandex
work I mentioned, I do not foresee having time to work on this
Sure. But it's great to know that you'd find it useful and can imagine
adding it. Thanks!
