public interface AnnotatableData
extends IdentifiableData

An annotatable item is an item that can be annotated with name/value pairs. All annotations are held in an AnnotationSetData object.

This interface defines Hibernate database mapping for the annotationSet association to a column with the name annotationset_id. If a subclass wants to map the association to another column, it should override the getAnnotationSet() method and add a Hibernate tag in the comment.

Reference implementation

private AnnotationSetData annotationSet;
public AnnotationSetData getAnnotationSet()
   return annotationSet;
public void setAnnotationSet(AnnotationSetData annotationSet)
   this.annotationSet = annotationSet;
