Hello ,

A question says: A Flight bean and a Reservation bean have a @OneToMany relationship.
And asks which code represents the correct relationship.

How would a person know which is the owner side and which is the inverse side of the relationship to apply the @mappedBy attribute ?

I'm assuming this relationship is bidirectional because the mappedBy annotation was mentioned. This attribute pertains to the owning side of the relationship.

You can read the section on Entity Relationships from the book Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 (5th Edition) for more details.

Persistence specification:

The inverse side of a bidirectional relationship must refer to its owning side by use of the
mappedBy element of the OneToOne, OneToMany, or ManyToMany annotation. The
mappedBy element designates the property or field in the entity that is the owner of the relationship.

So , @mappedby should be placed on the inverse side not the owning side

Thanks,

Owner side of the relationship is the one which contains foreign key in db table
 
I didn't do it. You can't prove it. Nobody saw me. The sheep are lying! This tiny ad is my witness!
