Hi All,

I work on an application that connect to database by hibernate (I use annotations). I have 2 entities (Department and Employee). Of course the Employee has one Department but the Department has many employees.

What I want is to be able to delete some Department without delete its Employees. (When deleting Department the hibernate should delete constraints that link some Employees to it without deleting the Employees).

Any help please.

Thank you.

So One Department can have Many employees.

Put Cascade as None.What is the constraint?
Employee table put department discriptor.

Post your code also sample code.
