I am new to hibernate and wanted to know how do i represent one to many association in mapping file if i just want it to be unidirectional.

if i represent < one-to-many > element in one class and <many-one> in other class then does it mean it's representing Bi directional Association ??

In your class wheen you define one-many there you mentioned inverse=true.
It makes bidirectional relationship.
