org.hibernate.AnnotationException: Unable to create unique key constraint - if column not found

Description

Entity:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 @Entity @Table( indexes = { @Index(name = "ik_facebookpage_image_fetchtime", columnList = "image.fetchtime"), } ) // https://jira.spring.io/browse/DATAREST-405 @JsonTypeInfo(use= JsonTypeInfo.Id.NAME, property="@type") @JsonSubTypes(@JsonSubTypes.Type(name="FacebookPage", value=FacebookPage.class)) @JsonInclude(JsonInclude.Include.NON_NULL) public class FacebookPage implements Serializable { ... @Embedded private ImageInfo image;

Embeddable containing the affected column:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 @Embeddable public class ImageInfo implements Serializable { ... @Column(columnDefinition = "timestamp with time zone") @Type(type = "org.jadira.usertype.dateandtime.joda.PersistentDateTime") private DateTime fetchTime; ...

The exception itself is about missing column or naming strategy (which is another problem), but this bug refers to incorrect usage of "unique constraint", since the code never specifies unique=true, so it should be just a regular index. i.e. "Unable to create index" would be an accurate error message.

An additional issue (which may be another bug?) is that hibernate.ddl-auto is not set, so I'm wondering why would Hibernate want to create anything?
