Re: [hibernate-dev] Configuration as data for generating metamodel Gail Badner Mon May 23 03:00:43 2011

To be absolutely clear, I'm suggesting this as a way to put the new metamodel 
API in place for beta1, not for "a way out".

The Configuration would simply supply the data that would go into the new 
metamodel.

Hi,

I don't see what we would gain by this. In fact I don't know how you want  
to
do this. The way forward is the new metamodel.

Given the current state I don't believe into a beta1 either (at least not
w/ the functionality we discussed), but if we are looking for a way out,
I don't think this is it.
