Geez ... what's the difference between a bicycle and a unicycle? One has two wheels, one has one wheel. Bi = 2 and Uni = 1. Therefore, a bidirectional relationship must have two directions, easily labeled 'to' and 'from''. A unidirectional relationship likewise has one direction.

Here is my understanding:
Suppose there are two beans A and B.
Bidirectional means: A can get B, and B can get A too;
In A: getB();
In B: getA();
Unidirectional means: A can get B, but B can't get A.
In A: getB();
In B: no method to get A.
