public class Item implements Serializable { private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L; private Long itemId; private java.sql.Date creationDate; private String itemCategory; private String itemDescription; private Long itemPrice; private java.sql.Date lastUpdateDate; private java.util.List itemComponents; ...
