The problem is that eclipse tooling tries and validate if the orm.xml actually maps to something

Currently the default for orm.xml seem to be field access first thus it fails validation if there is no
matching field.

The Eclipse tooling claims to be following the JPA spec thus why we are asking what Hibernate
is basing its choice on.
