I a <one-to-many> mapping element, the Hibernate docs says that you specify the column on the CHILD table to be joined with the ID column of the parent table. Is it really possible that you can't join on any other column on the PARENT table, other then the ID column?
IIRC, when I signed up, the Naming Policy explicitly mentioned that you need two names, typically "first" and "last" names, separated by a space. However, I don't see that it is mentioned in the current version of the Policy. It only says you need to use your "real name" (or something that looks like it could be). What I'm saying is that okavazovic is correct that his/her name conforms to the Policy as it is stated, even if it might not follow the spirit of the Policy. Maybe the Policy should be modified slightly to explicitly state that two names are required.
Of course, this probably isn't the thread to make sure this suggestion is seen, so where should I put it?
You can even use initials for the first name if you like."
This means that you can keep the O as your first name.
I understand that in some cultures there is no such thing as "first name and last name" - there is just one name. If you are one of these people, I would like to humbly ask you to sacrifice a piece of your culture to help me build this culture. In the past, permitting single names has inspired less wholesome "creative" aliases. The job of keeping names professional grew exponentially. The result is that exceptions to the naming rule are no longer permitted.
This paragraph definitely infers the use of TWO NAMES, first and last.
Layne, if you want to keep arguing about semantics, go ahead, but the actual rule is two names, first and alst. That is what we as bartenders are told to enforce, through the owner of this website. Paul Wheaton. If you have problems you can discuss it in the JavaRanch forum, or directly to Paul. I can assure you will not get far on this type of argument.
