Hi All,

I m trying to join two tables say hiber_employee(id,empId,name,designation) and hiber_company(companyid,empid,grade,salary).
but i dont want to store the joined values into a new table.
i have made three persistence classes for each table and 1 POJO for the join.
my hiber_join.hbm.xml file looks like..

<hibernate-mapping >
<class name="join.Hiber_Join" >
<id name="joinId" type="int" unsaved-value="null">
<column name="ID" sql-type="number" not-null="true"/>
<generator class="hilo"/>
</id>
<property name="empId"/>
<property name="name"/>
<property name="grade"/>
<property name="salary"/>
<property name="designation"/>
</class>
<class name="join.Hiber_Company" table="hiber_company">
<id name="companyId" type="int" unsaved-value="null">
<column name="COMPANY_ID" sql-type="number" not-null="true"/>
<generator class="hilo"/>
</id>
<property name="empId"/>
<property name="grade"/>
<property name="salary"/>
</class>
<class name="join.Hiber_Employee" table="hiber_employee">
<id name="id" type="int" unsaved-value="null">
<column name="ID" sql-type="number" not-null="true"/>
<generator class="hilo"/>
</id>
<property name="name"/>
<property name="empId"/>
<property name="desgn"/>
</class>
</hibernate-mapping>

is this the right way of writing .hbm.xml in case of join...??

Hello,

You don't do joins in Hibernate, Hibernate does it for you. You should read the Hibernate reference manual (http://www.hibernate.org/hib_docs/v3/reference/en/html/), it explains everything you need to know...

Regards,
Jan

It looks like you're trying to design your classes around the database. What you should be doing is design the classes then map them to the database. It looks to me like you should only have two classes, somthing like:

From there you could build your Company.hbm.xml and Employee.hbm.xml
