I'm having a strange foreign key problem. I'm allowing Hibernate to create my table structure based on my annotated classes. When using the following



The generated table includes:



I'm getting a foreign key: car_id -> person_car.id

I can't figure out why it is creating the creating a foreign key back to the PERSON_CAR table. If I provide the annotation:

There is more code in the application. What other annotations create foreign keys? What could I be doing wrong?

Thanks.

Try adding

@JoinColumn(name="personcarId")
or the name might be personcar_id, I forget which Hibernate will generate.

Without the @JoinColumn Hibernate will create a join table between the two tables.

However, also looking at what was generated, isn't the car_id the FK field to the car table? Which actually looks correct to me.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
