I want to make bidirectional ManyToMany relationship between PhotoInfo and UserInfo.
Moreover, I want to track when each PhotoInfo--UserInfo relationship is established.

However, this attempt fails with following exception:



How can I annotate this relationship properly?
Thanks in advance.

Both sides of a bi-directional @ManyToMany must be @ManyToMany, you cannot use @ElementCollection, or @Temporal.

You must make the Date the key not the value for what you are trying to do to work.

But it might be better to map an Entity to the join table instead (UserPhotoRelationship), see,

Because it is possible to have same timestamp for user-photo relationship,
I couldn't use Date as the key of map.

Instead, I decided to create a "mapping" entity like this, and it works perfectly.
Thanks for answering.
