 Post subject: Enum property - annotation on getter fails

I have a table with a `status: varchar` column. Java entity class has property:

Code:
public enum Status { ENABLED, DISABLED }
private Status status;
@Enumerated(EnumType.STRING)
public Status getStatus() {
   return status;
}


That fails. But it works if I move the `@Enumerated` annotation to the private field, instead of the getter. Is that expected behavior?

The error when the annotation is on the getter: org.postgresql.util.PSQLException: Bad value for type int : ENABLED

I stepped through code and can see it's treating the enum property as if it didn't have the `@Enumerated` and it's defaulting to `EnumType.ORDINAL`.

I thought it was acceptable, or even preferred, to put the annotations on the getters, not the fields.

As explained in the User Guide, the placement of the @Id gives the access strategy.

In your case, most likely the @Id is on a field, so you have two options:

1. Either you move all annotations to getters, including thee @Id.
2. You leave the @Id on the field, but use the @Access annotation:

Code:
@Access( AccessType.PROPERTY )
@Enumerated(EnumType.STRING)
public Status getStatus() {
   return status;
}
