Can I alter the default naming convention for Entities?

I am using the persistence-springdatajpa templates to create Entities. The process works fine against the mySql database that I am using, but the output entities all have the word "Entity" appened to them. For example: BookEntity.java, ChapterEntity.java, etc. Is there a way to change the naming convention to remove that word from the name?

Yes, you can change it, you just have to edit : - the "templates.cgf" file to change the generated file name : eg "${BEANNAME}Entity.java" can be changed to "${BEANNAME}.java" - the template used to generate the file "jpa_bean_with_links.vm" to change the class name : eg remove the line #set ( $env.entityClassNameSuffix = "Entity" ) If you are in the Eclipse plugin just click on the "templates.cfg" icon and on the "edit" icon for the ".vm" file
