First, the context:
I have a very simple Spring Boot project (created with the Initialzr) and some @Entities (with @Entity, @Table and some @NamedQueries and @NamedNativeQueries). The Hibernate mappings are validated correctly at application startup against the database configured in application.properties (i.e. Spring Boot recognizes they are entities and knows how to talk to the database).
- I also have a project-level datasource configured in Idea against the same database and all is well with it
- The module has the JPA and Hibernate facets (no descriptors configured, since one doesn't exist as Spring Boot scans the project classes for @Entities), The module also has the Spring facet
The problem: with the @Entity class in the editor, there is no validation of the @Table name, @Column mappings or named queries. Nor is there navigation from the table/column name to the corresponding table/column in the Datasource view. It's as if Idea doesn't recognize the class as an @Entity; pressing Alt-Enter when inside the @Table name does not prompt for a data source to use for validation. I speculate this is due to the absence of an explicit persistence.xml or Hibernate mapping file, normal for Spring Boot apps.
I also went into the Persistence tab (where I can see one entry for JPA and Hibernate and I right-clicked each, then selected Assign Data Source but in both dialog the list of persistence units (or session factories, respectively) are empty.
Is the above a limitation of Idea? Or am I missing something?
Thanks and I can provide files if needed.
Idea is 2016.1.2
