      Hi there @Hibernate (must be a pretty often repeated joke in here...)

      I have an @Embeddable object AllocationId which extends another @Embeddable
      object (GenericId). AllocationId, is simply a marker class and has NO attributes in it,
      while all attributes (String id; which I want to persist) are in GenericId (inherited in AllocationId).

      I get the following exception:

      org.hibernate.AnnotationException: com.xxx.yyy.AllocationId has no persistent id property

      Any Ideas ?

      Code snippets as follow:

      public final class AllocationId extends GenericId {

      // ... serial UID here - removed as considered somewhat sensitive ...


      • @param id
        public AllocationId(final String id) { super(id); }


      public abstract class GenericId implements Serializable {


      • The actual Id
        protected String id; // THIS IS NOT BEING 'SEEN' AS INSIDE AllocationId


      • Constructor to create a generic Id.
      • Syntactic checks are performed here (not null and empty string)
      • @param allocationId The allocation Id
        protected GenericId(final String id) { validate(id); this.id = id; }


      • Performs syntactic checking of the generic id
      • @param id may not be null or empty ""
        private void validate(final String id) throws IllegalArgumentException {

      if (id == null)

      { throw new IllegalArgumentException("id cannot be null"); }

      if (id.trim().length() == 0)

      { throw new IllegalArgumentException("id cannot be length 0"); }



      • @return the id
        public String getId() { return this.id; }

      public String toString()

      { return getId(); }

      // some less interesting code here .equals overrides etc.

      Let me know.

      Many Thanks - for your attention and for your GREAT product,
      Malta (MT).
