In assignment rules for relationships (pg 154 of ejb spec)..

A and B are in one-to-one bidirectional relation..

a1 <--> b1
a2 <--> b2


a1.setB(a2.getB()) will result in

'a2.getB() == null'.

Suppose we just have:

a1.setB(b2) (that is, not accessing b2 through a2), will the container still be aware that b2 is involved with a2 and yield the same result ?

In bean class cmp fields are not declared. But the getters and setters for cmp fields are declared. So, there is no way we can set

can get to local reference to entity bean b in the entity bean a and set it
still container figures it out and makes the reference for other to null

yes,the same result.
a2.getB()==null,because the container will do it for us
