Subject Re: How to map multiple properties to same column as writable in jpa
Date Fri, 27 Jul 2007 12:34:33 GMT
I was wondering the same thing (but with JPA of course). I tried and was
getting a message that the members were out of sync.

@JoinColumn(name="userid", referencedColumnName="id")
private User user;


private String userId;

How would I go about keeping them in sync? Especially, when someone
calls setUser(user) with a new instance that might not have an id.

Is there a way in OpenJPA to say that the userId column is only for
read-only and not persist operations?
