Subject support for identifying relations in JPA/OpenJPA
Date Wed, 30 Jul 2008 18:58:59 GMT

Does OpenJPA support identifying relationship (a.k.a compound identity 
relations) between two entities?

I checked the OpenJPA user documentation and did searches in the 
internet which didn't gave any good answers. So I tried to test it out 
my self
following the bottom-up approach.  I created a simple ERD (attached) 
with 3 entities and identifying relations between them, and used OpenJPA
reverse mapping tool to generate JPA entities from the db schema. But 
when iI tried to persist the entities generated by the reverse-
mapping tool I get the following error:

Caused by: <openjpa-1.1.0-r422266:657916 fatal user error> 
org.apache.openjpa.persistence.InvalidStateException: Attempt to set 
column "C.B_ID" to two different values: (class java.lang.String)"B1", 
(null)"null" This can occur when you fail to set both sides of a 
two-sided relation between objects, or when you map different fields to 
the same column, but you do not keep the values of these fields in synch.
   at org.apache.openjpa.jdbc.sql.PrimaryRow.setObject(
   at org.apache.openjpa.jdbc.sql.RowImpl.setString(

Attached is the ERD that I am trying to implement using JPA.

Is identifying relations not suppored in JPA? If it is, how do I do it?

Any help is highly appreciated.
