notes to self,
-JPA is the standard java annotation thingy for hibernate type things
-hibernate reference document lists nicely all configuration options. to get a list of relevant ones to set better to google for tutorial for hibernate and that db, then check the docs for what the options are.
-“hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto”, “create” leads to breaking of the mysql innodb syntax. at least it gives the syntax to create the table, just need to run this first and fix manually the engine part.
-annotationconfiguration class in hibernate is deprecated. just use “configuration” class in the same way. reference manual configuration section also helps in the first paragraphs.
