Hi Andy,

In the company package.jdo, some of the information you need is there

         <class name="Employee"
             <field name="reviewedProjects" 
         <class name="Project"
             <field name="projid" primary-key="true"/>
             <field name="reviewers" persistence-modifier="persistent">

In the company-derby.orm, the Project is mapped thus:

         <class name="Project" table="projects">
             <field name="projid" column="PROJID" primary-key="true"/>
             <field name="reviewers" table="project_reviewer">
                 <join column="PROJID"/>
                 <element column="REVIEWER"/>

And the Employee:

         <class name="Employee">
          <field name="reviewedProjects" mapped-by="reviewers"/>

 From this mapping of reviewers, you know that the project_reviewer 
table contains a column referring to Project called PROJID, and a 
column referring to the Employee called REVIEWER. When you have a 
mapped-by attribute, you need to invert the mapping for the other side, 
so the join column on the Employee side is REVIEWER, and the reference 
to the other side is PROJID.

 From the types of both fields, reviewers and reviewed_by, you have the 
collection element types.

I don't know what more information is needed in order to map this. 
Could you explain your algorithm and tell us where you arrive which 
needs more information?

I do have an action item for Chapter 15 that should explain this better.
