it generates this annotation for field descripcion
@Column(name = "descripcion", length = 16777215)

table is

CREATE TABLE `deposito_cajas_compuestas_entrada` (
	`id_caja_entrante` INT(11) UNSIGNED NOT NULL,
	`id_caja_compuesta` INT(11) UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,

when trying to create the EMF i get this error

org.hibernate.tool.schema.spi.SchemaManagementException: Schema-validation: wrong column type encountered in column [descripcion] in table [deposito_cajas_compuestas_entrada]; found [mediumtext (Types#LONGVARCHAR)], but expecting [longtext (Types#VARCHAR)]

It could be that Hibernate Tools generated the description column like this:

registerColumnType( Types.CLOB, 16777215, "mediumtext" );

while the MySQLDialect maps it like this:

registerColumnType( Types.CLOB, "longtext" );

However, this change occurred in Hibernate 3.3.0. For more details, check out the HHH-2669 Jira issue.

You should debug Hibernate Tools and check why it generates that column as mediumtext.

what should i manually write in the entity to pass validation? is there a mapping in the docs for each mysql type thei i could check?

You can extend the Dialect and override the Types.CLOB like this:

registerColumnType( Types.CLOB, 16777215, "mediumtext" );

as i see its commented in the original file,

what dialect do you recommend me to use, i having similar errors with the mysql57dialect too. as it extends the previous… tis logical

Extend the 57 Dialect and add that call I told you.

ok thanks a lot! nice to meet u again

You are very welcome
