Hi,
when I try to delete a persistent object I get:
net.sf.hibernate.PropertyValueException: not-null property references a null or transient value

what does it mean?

Thanks,
John

Hi John Landon,

to make a guess - you are trying to delete an object that is referenced by (a.k.a. associated with) some other object. The other object has the first object as a property value that may not be null, I suppose.

Actually no. So the full thing says :

Yes fieldA is an of type ClassB. What you are saying I am trying to delete ClassB that is referenced by classA but the opposite is true.
Any other ideas?
Thanks.

Hi John Landon,

ok, I try a second time... hm, what about cascading? Could there be conflicts when cascading your delete to associations? Probably over several stages?
