I am having problems with JPA using Toplink. I have used the default generated code for entities with NetBeans 6.1.
There are three tables defined in MySQL as
The entities generated lead rightly to Composite Keys with @Embedded and EmbeddedID annotations for the tables FilesOnServer and FolderDetails with additional entities FilesOnServerPK FolderDetailsPK .
I persist the relationship (between the FilesOnServer and FolderDetails entities with the code below
The FileOnServer entity is persisted without error but the PARENT_ID field remains null when I was expecting it to be updated with the FOLDER_ID field from the FolderDetails Table/entity.
In the log the following sql command appears INSERT INTO files_on_server (FILENAME, FILESIZE, FILE_ID, AUTO_UID) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?) bind => [n0n0n.txt, 51, 1001, 1]
The thing I noted it that there is no refernce to the PARENT_ID column here...
Any ideas what I may be doing wrong?

The workaround we use is to expand the primary key for FilesOnServer to also include the ParentID which works but is a hack.
