Bi-directional mapping problems while creating tables on runtime

Hi,

I have tables with many-many relationship mapping and they are bidirectional.

I am writing junits using spring mock,DBUnit and HSQL. All the tables are created on the fly using hibernate's HBM2DDL option.

when table 'student' is getting created, i am getting exception saying table 'student_course' doesnt exist. I tried to move around the order of tables creation , but nothing is working.

Here are the mapping files

Table student:
===============
<hibernate-mapping package="test">
<class name="Student" table="student" lazy="true" batch-size="20" >
<id name="studentId" column="student_id" type="long" unsaved-value="0">
<generator class="identity"/>
</id>

<property name="name" column="name" />
<set name="courses" table="student_course" cascade="save-update">
<key column="student_id" />
<many-to-many column="course_id" class="Course" />
</set>
</class>
</hibernate-mapping>

Table course:
===============
<hibernate-mapping package="test">
<class name="Course" table="course" lazy="true" batch-size="20" >
<id name="courseId" column="course_id" type="long" unsaved-value="0">
<generator class="identity"/>
</id>
<property name="name" column="name" />

<property name="countOfStudents" lazy="true"
formula="(select count(*) from student_course sc
where sc.course_id = course_id) " />
</class>
</hibernate-mapping>

Table student_course:
==================
<hibernate-mapping package="test">
<class name="StudentCourse" table="student_course" lazy="true" batch-size="20">
<id name="studentCourseId" column="student_course_id" type="long" unsaved-value="0">
<generator class="identity" />
</id>

<many-to-one name="student" column="student_id"/>
<many-to-one name="course" column="course_id" />
</class>
</hibernate-mapping>


If i remove the set in student mapping, then everything is working fine, but that requires changes in my code, can anybody suggest other options.

Thanks,
Nag

Nag, next time please use the CODE button below the Add Reply button when posting code or XML so that the indentation remains and it is readable.

But I don't see a ManyToMany mapping in your student class. You would have one if you mean to make it bi-directional.

Also, your studentcourse table does not need a mapping. It is a join table, so if you just have the two many to many mappings in just student and course you will generate a join table automatically.
