Hi All,

I've looked around, but not been able to find this answer: Can I turn off
the discriminator type in the database? I'm working against a pre-existing
schema so I'm not able to have the dtype column. If I remove it, what
problems would I be causing?

Thanks,

Jason

Hi Jason,
The discriminator column is required in case of single table inheritance mapping strategy. This
because Hibernate needs to know type of object is stored in a specific record in the db.

In case of inheritance strategy joined then no discriminator column is added.
You can either set the inheritance mapping strategy globally (see the options) or use an Inheritance
annotation.
