I have mapped User --> UserProduct association(one-to-many) in hibernate as follows:


I also have User class and UserProduct classes as follows:


Here is the part of User.hbm.xml that shows the association:


Here is the UserProduct.hbm.xml file.


How do I delete all userProducts for a given User ?

When I load a user in the Hibernate session and do the following:


The user records do not get deleted !

Can someone show me the correct way to modify hibernate associations.

Thank you very much for the reply and the useful link.

You are precisely correct. I was missing cascade="all-delete-orphan". That fixed the problem.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
