PersistenceUnit on package not working

Reported by Alex | April 24th, 2014 @ 03:12 AM | in 1.4.x

Framework version: Master commit ceeaa80216e6ba9e9a847fa8625b257e0ce16a67
Platform you're using: Windows x64

According to documentation http://www.playframework.com/documentation/1.2.3/jpa

You can use package-info.java and annotate the package with @PersistenceUnit to enforce a specific JPA configuration to all entity-classes in the Java package.

Since we update compiler to support java8, TransactionalJPATest is failing.

But according to PersistenceUnit documentation: @Target(value={TYPE,METHOD,FIELD})
So we shouldn't be able to use it on Package.

Any idea about it, should we create another annotation to handle that?

<h2>Creating a bug report</h2> Bug reports are incredibly helpful, so take time to report bugs and request features in our ticket tracker. We’re always grateful for patches to Play’s code. Indeed, bug reports with attached patches will get fixed far quickly than those without any.<br><br>

Don't have too much expectations. Unless the bug is really a serious "everything is broken" thing, you're creating a ticket to start a discussion. Having a patch (or a branch on Github we can pull from) is better, but then again we'll only pull high quality branches that make sense to be in the core of Play.
