Error on compiling query: The abstract schema type 'entity' is unknown

I'm developing a game with a database connection, and I use JPA to persist my data. Here is my Game entity :

@Entity
@Table(name = "game")
public class Game implements Serializable {
private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

@Id
@GeneratedValue(strategy = GenerationType.AUTO)
@Column(name = "game_id")
private int id;

@Column(name = "name")
private String name;

@Column(name = "nbTurns")
private int nbTurns;

@Column(name = "playedOn")
@Temporal(TemporalType.TIMESTAMP)
private Date playedOn;

@ElementCollection(fetch = FetchType.EAGER)
@CollectionTable(name = "game_humans", joinColumns = @JoinColumn(name = "game_id"))
@MapKeyColumn(name = "human_id")
@Column(name = "isDead")
private Map<Human, Boolean> humans;


And here is my Human entity :

@Entity
@Table(name = "human")
public class Human implements Serializable {

private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

@Id
@GeneratedValue(strategy = GenerationType.AUTO)
private int id;
@Column(name = "name")
private String name;
@OneToOne
private Building building;


To get the list of all the humans stored in the DB, I use this DAO, which is working very well and gets also the Building entity :

public class HumanDAO implements DAO<Human> {

// ...
public List<Human> getAllHumans() {
TypedQuery<Human> query = em.createQuery("SELECT h FROM human h ORDER BY h.name", Human.class);
return query.getResultList();
}


The problem is when I try to do the same to get the list of all the games with the JPQL query
SELECT g FROM game g
, I get this error :

Can someone help me please ? Thanks in advance.

Answer

You should have

SELECT g FROM Game g//you have game

but you have game instead of Game.

The @Table annotation is used for DB. If you need to change the name in your JPQL, use the @Entity annotation: @Entity(name="nameUsedInJPQL") => nameUsedInJPQL is used in your JPQL. If you do not specify anything in your @Entity, that the case-sensitive Entity class name is used.
