  • STS Spring template JPA utility project not faceted

    I'm new to STS, but just created a JPA utility project using the Swing templates.

    The arising project has no eclipse facets, so the JPA tools are not available (tables <> entities). Also the JPA persistance.xml editor (as is available in an eclipse faceted JPA project) is gone so you cannot add / browse the entity beans.

    Are these features as expected ?

    JPA projects in STS

    Not sure if this is intended usage pattern - but it seems to work ok for me.

    1 . New Spring template project
    - Simple Spring JPA Utility Project
    - project setting temp, a.b.c + finish
    - project with 3 builders Java, Spring & Maven + no facets.
    - persistance.xml only has XML view
    - entities only open with basic java editor in JPA perspective.
    - Spring configuration files open with a multi tabbed Spring context Editer

    2. Configure > convert project to JPA project
    - 2 more builders
    - facets now includes JPA project facet
    - persistance.xml open with multi tabbed editor
    - entities now open with (JPA perspective) + supporting JPA details view

    In summary looks like you have to use 'Convert to JPA Project' to create the facets with no loss of Spring / Maven capability.
