Hello,
I work with JPA in a site drive project, I encounter a problem with the @Entity annotation that gives me an error that I do not understand.

here is my source code:




Error on @Entity : The Java class for mapped type "Article" must define a non-private zero-argument constructor

I tried several syntax but I do not see where is the error!

How to do ?

You can make it protected or package-private, it doesn't need to be public. It can't be private though.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
