Add a static factory method to your EO's ( Person createPerson(...) ) that shows you what required attributes and relationships are configured for you entity (attempts to provide a replacement "constructor" since EO constructors are empty):

Code Block
bartrue
public static <$classNameWithoutPackage$> create<$classNameWithoutPackage$>(EOEditingContext _editingContext<$foreach Attribute classAttributes.@sortedNameArray do$><$if !Attribute.allowsNull$>, <$Attribute.javaValueClassName$> _<$Attribute.name$><$endif$><$endforeach do$><$foreach ToOneRelationship classToOneRelationships.@sortedNameArray do$><$if ToOneRelationship.isMandatory$>, <$ToOneRelationship.destinationEntity.referenceJavaClassName$> _<$ToOneRelationship.name$><$endif$><$endforeach do$>) {
   <$classNameWithoutPackage$> eoObject = (<$classNameWithoutPackage$>)EOUtilities.createAndInsertInstance(_editingContext, <$GEN_PREFIX$><$classNameWithoutPackage$>.ENTITY_NAME);<$foreach Attribute classAttributes.@sortedNameArray do$><$if !Attribute.allowsNull$>
   eoObject.set<$Attribute.name.initialCapitalString$>(_<$Attribute.name$>);<$endif$><$endforeach do$><$foreach ToOneRelationship classToOneRelationships.@sortedNameArray do$><$if ToOneRelationship.isMandatory$>
   eoObject.set<$ToOneRelationship.name.initialCapitalString$>Relationship(_<$ToOneRelationship.name$>);<$endif$><$endforeach do$>
   return eoObject;
}

Here's a little bitty fancier (read: nastier) version that also handles superclass mandatory attributes and fields (one level). It skips any attribute that is referenced in the restricting qualifier of your subclass (since you are probably going to set that in your awakeFromInsertion):
