Consider the following relationship between Customer and Address entities.
Customer 0..1 ----------- 0..* Address
What will be the result of the follow method call made by a client?
somecustomer.setAddresses(null);

Select 1 correct option.

1 In the Customer bean, the reference variable pointing to a Collection object for addresses will be set to null.

2 In the Customer bean, the Collection object referenced by variable for addresses will be emptied.

3 This call is illegal. It should pass an empty Collection object if it wants to remove all the addresses for a customer.

4 In the Customer bean, the Collection object referenced by variable for orders will be emptied and all the addresses entities will be deleted from the database.

Hi Parmeet,

Page 155 of the specification has the answer you are looking for:
"It is the responsibility of the Container to raise the java.lang.IllegalArgumentException if the Bean Provider attempts to assign null as the value of a collection-valued cmr-field by means of the set accessor method."

So option 3 is the correct one.

Regards,
Stefan
