Hi,

I'm busy trying to visualize this JPA limitation:
JPA does not support unidirectional one-to-many relationships with the foreign key on the target table


So I devised the following unidirectional one-to-many relationship:


How would I go about ensuring that there IS a foreign key on the target table?Isn't this only possible by making this bi-directional?The way I understand it...the only way that a foreign key will be stored in "CHILD" table is if the Child entity has a reference to the Father entity ie. But doing this would make the relationship bi-directional,hence the limitation wouldn't apply!How else can a foreign key be specified?
