jpa mysql table does not exists

I am trying to insert a Employee entity into the database. I am using JPA and the database is mysql.
When I try to insert the entity, it gives me test.employee does not exist. I assume that I dont have to create
the table. Entity will automatically create the table with the annotated name.
Please find the exception and code below.

Answer

You will need extra configuration if you want an auto generated varchar.

The generation of DDL is translating to:

CREATE TABLE employee (EMP_ID VARCHAR(255) AUTO_INCREMENT NOT NULL, FIRST_NAME VARCHAR(255), LAST_NAME VARCHAR(255), PRIMARY KEY (EMP_ID))

and the log is saying:

Internal Exception: com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.MySQLSyntaxErrorException: Incorrect column specifier for column 'EMP_ID'
Error Code: 1063

MySql is rejecting EMP_ID becuase it cant have AUTO_INCREMENT with varchar, and you need to specify the auto generation for it. Probably Derby has this feature, and it works different for MySql.

You might wanna look in this answer.

Or just change the type of EMP_ID to an integer number if you dont mind the type or for a quick test.
