Hibernate trying to insert recursive object - I don't want it to

I have a class with a recursive association:



the parent is optional but I don't think I have the correct mapping. Every time I try to insert a record with a null parent, it tries to insert a new one for the parent once the child is created. The parent field should only reference a preexisting object in the database.

Here is the error message


I'm sure it's something silly in my mapping. Any suggestions?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
