Hibernate JPA annotations work only on get method, not set

I have a project where I'm using Hibernate with JPA annotations. I got stuck where the annotations to one of my attributes wouldn't stick, but I finally figured it out:

You have to annotate either the member (in which case all attributes must be annotated via member), or the get method for your attribute. You can't annotate the set method.
