Persistent class

Persistent classes are those java classes whose objects have to be stored in the database tables. They should follow some simple rules of Plain Old Java Object programming model (POJO).

Some rules that should be, not must be followed by a persistence class.

  1. 1. A persistence class should have a default constructor.
  2. 2. A persistence class should have an id to uniquely identify the class objects.
  3. 3. All attributes should be declared private.
  4. 4. Public getter and setter methods should be defined to access the class attributes.
