    qualifier="customerID" type="java.lang.String">
   <modifiers read="true" write="true" search="true" optional="true"/>
  <persistence type="property"/>
 </attribute>
</attributes>
</itemtype>

  <persistence type="property"/>
   <modifiers read="true" write="true" search="true" initial="true" optional="false" unique="true"/>
   <custom-properties>
      <property name="hmcIndexField">
