I have 2 tables category and product. they have one-to-many relation in them.

Category : cat_id(PK),cat_name,cat_desc
Product : prod_id(PK),prod_name,prod_desc,cat_id(FK)

As both have one to many relation so i have declared a set in Category Table.


class Category implements Serializable
Set products;
public void setProducts(Set prod)
this.products = prod;
public Set getProducts()
return products;


i need to refer the result list of Category entity bean from my JSF view page.
here my problem is i cant diplay the set value in my JSF page, becaause no one JSF component to support to display the Set value
so i convert the Set value into List and then i can diplay it, as in


here the same proble will arrives when i need to set the value to Category entity bean,

Please any one help to how to set the value to "Category" class property "products"

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
