Hibernate composite key with foregin key to another table - How to avoid circular reference?
posted 4 years ago
I have a Student table with an auto generated id as primary key and one to many mapping to Phone table.
My Phone table has a composite key PhonePK with phone number and the foreign key id to the Student table as primary keys.
If I do phonePk.setStudent it works but I really don't want to do this. How can I achieve this? If its not achievable, I would like to settle with setting the student id but not the whole student object. How do I do this? Would really appreciate if someone can give an insight on this.
