Re: [eclipselink-users] Legacy database ddl generation with duplicate column definition.

Well, you do have quick eyes. However, this is not the problem. This legacy
database use "FcorpID" in exercise table and use "FCoprID" in member table.
The design is such, hence the difference in mapping column names. It's not
the error.

I searched hibernate forum for similar questions, it seemed that hibernate
has this issue too. I don't know if it's solved yet though. 

If I leave insertable and updatble to default, I can even not able to update
table data since there're duplicate mappings. As I turn off these settings,
updaing is working fine, but there lacks a way to notify also schema
creation that only one mapping of the two is needed.
