Hi Vlad, thanks for your blogs on JPA and Hibernate.
In my codebase, I found a
Course entity classes with the below relationships.
@OneToMany(cascade = CascadeType.ALL, fetch = FetchType.LAZY, mappedBy = "student") private List courseList = new ArrayList<>();
@OneToOne(fetch = FetchType.LAZY) @JoinColumn(name = "STUDENT_ID", nullable = false) private Student student;
I thought in the
Course entity, the inverse annotation would be a
@ManyToOne but I found a
@OneToOne. Is this possible given your statement in one of your article:
“The bidirectional association requires the child entity mapping to provide a @ManyToOne annotation, which is responsible for controlling the association.”
