I am trying to use a OneToMany relationship between my MemberDetail Class and its addresses. Here is the code:

The Address class does not have any reference to MemberDetail class.

Creating the Member Detail:

I get the following error upon persisting:
19:37:16,671 ERROR [STDERR] javax.persistence.PersistenceException: org.hibernate.NonUniqueObjectException: a different object with the same identifier value was already associated with the session: [com.justbooks.common.entities.Address#0]
19:37:16,687 ERROR [STDERR] at org.hibernate.ejb.AbstractEntityManagerImpl.throwPersistenceException(
19:37:16,687 ERROR [STDERR] at org.hibernate.ejb.AbstractEntityManagerImpl.persist(
19:37:16,687 ERROR [STDERR] at org.jboss.ejb3.entity.TransactionScopedEntityManager.persist(
19:37:16,687 ERROR [STDERR] at

I am using EJB 3.0 persistence with J2EE 1.4/J2SE 5. I assume that Address IDs should be autogenerated. I am using MySQL DB and I have marked the field for autogenerate.

I am sure I am doing something wrong, but not able to pinpoint the problem.

Thanks in advance. Any clues are welcome.

Figured the problem out.

I was using Hibernate reverse engineering plugin to generate entities from MySQL DB. Some of the entities that have been generated do not have @GeneratedValue annotation. Once I put put it in the entity POJO, things started working fine.
I agree. Here's the link:
