Hi I'm new to JPA with hibernate, I have tables with one-to-many relationship and Entity bean accordingly. When im trying to insert the record into the DB, it is throws an exception:
org.hibernate.PropertyValueException: not-null property references a null or transient value:

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS wsrdatabase.wsr
(
wsr_id integer(100) not null auto_increment,
employee_num varchar(100) not null,
from_date datetime not null,
to_date datetime not null,
status integer default 0 not null,
constraint primary key (wsr_id),
constraint foreign key (employee_num)
references wsrdatabase.employee(employee_num)
on update cascade
on delete cascade
);

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS wsrdatabase.tasks
(
task_id integer(75) not null auto_increment,
task_name varchar(75) not null,
task_details varchar(1000),
date datetime not null,
time_spent varchar(100) not null,
constraint primary key (task_id)
);

CREATE TABLE IF NOT EXISTS wsrdatabase.tasks_for_the_week
(
wsr_id integer(100) not null,
task_id integer(75) not null,
constraint primary key (wsr_id, task_id),
constraint unique key (task_id),
constraint foreign key (wsr_id)
references wsrdatabase.wsr(wsr_id),
constraint foreign key (task_id)
references wsrdatabase.tasks(task_id)
);

entity bean:
.
.
@Entity
@Table(name = "wsr")
public class WSR
{
@Id
@GeneratedValue(strategy = GenerationType.AUTO)
@Column(name = "wsr_id", nullable = false, unique = true)

@Basic
@Column(name = "employee_num", nullable = false, unique = false)
private String employeeNum;

@Basic
@Column(name = "from_date", nullable = false, unique = false)
private Date fromDate;

@Basic
@Column(name = "to_date", nullable = false, unique = false)

@Basic
@Column(name = "status", nullable = false, unique = false)
private Integer status;

@OneToMany(cascade=CascadeType.ALL)
@JoinTable(name = "tasks_for_the_week", joinColumns = {
@JoinColumn(name="wsr_id", unique = true)},
inverseJoinColumns = {@JoinColumn(name="task_id")})
private List<Task> tasks;
.
.
.

@Entity

private Date date;

@Basic
@Column(name = "time_spent", nullable = false, unique = false)
private String timeSpent;

@ManyToOne(optional=true)
@JoinTable(name = "tasks_for_the_week", joinColumns = {
@JoinColumn(name="task_id") }, inverseJoinColumns = {
@JoinColumn(name="wsr_id") })
private WSR wsr;
.
.
.
main class

WSR wsr = new WSR();
Task t1 = new Task();
Task t2 = new Task();
wsr.setEmployeeNum( "131408" );
//wsr.setWsrId( new Long("123") );
wsr.setFromDate( new Date() );
wsr.setToDate( new Date() );
wsr.setStatus( new Integer("1") );
t1.setTaskDetails( "XYZ" );
t2.setTaskDetails( "ABC" );
t1.setTaskName("CR");
//t1.setTaskId( new Long ("1") );
//t2.setTaskId( new Long ("2") );
t2.setTaskName( "VTP" );
t1.setDate( new Date() );
t2.setDate( new Date() );
t1.setTimeSpent( "5.0" );
t2.setTimeSpent( "5.0" );
List<Task> a = new ArrayList<Task>();
a.add( t1 );
a.add( t2 );
wsr.setTasks( a );

LOG.info( "Inserting an wsr onject into DB" );
GeneralUtil.checkIfNull( wsr, "WSR " );
EntityManagerFactory entityManagerFactory = Persistence.
createEntityManagerFactory( Constants.PERSISTENCE_UNIT );
EntityManager entityManager = entityManagerFactory.createEntityManager();
EntityTransaction entityTransaction = entityManager.getTransaction();
entityTransaction.begin();
try
{
entityManager.merge( wsr );
entityTransaction.commit();
}
catch (EntityExistsException eee)
{
LOG.error( "The entity already exists" );
throw new WSRException( "The entity already exists", eee );
// entityTransaction.rollback();
}
catch (Exception e)
{
LOG.error( "Failed to insert into DB" );
throw new WSRException( e.getMessage(), e );
}
finally
{
LOG.debug( "Closing Entity Manager" );
entityManager.close();
}

im getting :

it got resolved. I have added one parmeter called wsr id which was not required.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
