Hi, i have a Basket class mapping ProductItem class with ManyToMany relationship. I only did the mapping on Basket
I would like to know if ProductItem will be updated if i execute hibernate update on Basket ... Say i have on ProductItem productA, productB, productC which are contained on the Basket (hence the relationship). If i remove productA (i do this by creating a new basket with only productB and productC then persist the new basket using update), would ProductItem table be updated? if not, how should i achieve this...
I would rather ask why a unidirectional many-to-many relationship would make sense. This is contradictory by nature IMHO. In a many-to-many relationship there's no real owner, so the target side should be able to access the other as well.
