Map enum as string with jpa

Use the @Enumerated(EnumType.STRING) annotation:

import javax.persistence.Entity;
import javax.persistence.EnumType;
import javax.persistence.Enumerated;

public class ComparisonReport implements Serializable {

  public static final String TABLE_NAME = "T_COMPARISON_REPORT";
  public static final String COLUMN_TRIGGER_TYPE = "TRIGGER_TYPE";

  @Column(name = COLUMN_TRIGGER_TYPE)
  private ReportTriggerType triggerType;

 //others ignored for brevity

The enum itself looks something the following

public enum ReportTriggerType {

    private String value;

    ReportTriggerType(String source) {
      this.value = source;

    public String getValue() {
      return value;
