in a different thread (that I didn't want to derail) a user asked a question about using bi-directional or uni-directional links. uni-directional links are an oddity in my mind, so I was perplexed when I read the following exchange:
in which Gavin suggests that a user split his/her model from a bi-directional association into 2 uni-directional associations (to accomodate the list-index element for lists).
I don't really know what this means, so I have to ask: what are 2 uni-directional links? If you put one uni-directional link in one hbm.xml file and another uni-directional link in a separate file, haven't you accidentally created a bi-directional link?? What am I missing? I'll go on a run in your name if you will enlighten me. [ March 13, 2007: Message edited by: Matt Horton ]
