If you have a many to many relationship which returns a collection of refences to local interfaces as defined below :

<ejb-relation >
<ejb-relation-name>features_geographic_zones</ejb-relation-name>

<ejb-relationship-role >
<ejb-relationship-role-name>feature-has-geographic_zones</ejb-relationship-role-name>
<multiplicity>Many</multiplicity>
<relationship-role-source >
<ejb-name>Feature</ejb-name>
</relationship-role-source>
<cmr-field >
<cmr-field-name>geographicZones</cmr-field-name>
<cmr-field-type>java.util.Collection</cmr-field-type>
</cmr-field>
</ejb-relationship-role>

<ejb-relationship-role >
<ejb-relationship-role-name>geographic_zone-has-features</ejb-relationship-role-name>
<multiplicity>Many</multiplicity>
<relationship-role-source >
<ejb-name>GeographicZone</ejb-name>
</relationship-role-source>
<cmr-field >
<cmr-field-name>features</cmr-field-name>
<cmr-field-type>java.util.Collection</cmr-field-type>
</cmr-field>
</ejb-relationship-role>

</ejb-relation>

how does the container persist the relationship/ mapping between the two ( in a one to many the relationship is persisted by creating a foreign key column in the schema). Also how do you traverse the relationship from either side using EJB-QL. A straight forward EJB-QL such as

SELECT OBJECT(g)
FROM GeographicZoneSchema g, IN(g.features) f
WHERE f.uid = ?1

seems to produce a empty collection.

Any thoughts would help.

Thanks

Peter
