Hi,

Is it possible to include the extension fields into another table and have property based access for those fields via a new extended secondary entity?

I am trying to avoid main table alter to support new fields/relationships and also have property based access for the extension fields.

Any thoughts?

Can we have a pojo to hold extensions instead of Map?

thanks,
Pradeep V.B.

You can map extensions however you wish. You can put the mappings in any table, and can any implementation under your get/set methods you wish.

What have your tried, and what issue have you had?

I was able to add new fields into the secondary table. My problem was to have property based access to the new fields. I dont want to use generic get/set methods for the extension fields. Is there a way to have proper getter/setter methods for the extended fields.

thanks,
Pradeep V.B.

If you can add the get/set methods to your class, you can use them. If the get/set methods are not there, then I don't see how you can use them?

Perhaps give detail on exactly what you are trying to do.
