So far, in EJB3, when it comes to many to many relationship joining 2 tables, we could do something like this


But now i have a situation whereby i need to join 3 tables together, for example I have a User entity, and would need a bridge/join table consisting of 3 keys, userId, roleId, companyId, whereby it links each of them to user's Id, role's Id and company's Id respectively.
So many to many relationship in the above case doesn't seem to work too well for this i assume?
What kind of table relationship mapping should i be using such that i could retrieve a list of role based on a given user Id and company Id?
