Glassfish + jdbcrealm

I'm trying to setup a jdbcrealm in Glassfish with MySQL and I can't find any complete examples on how to do this. All the examples I've seen so far just assumes that you're going to insert the appropriate values directly into the tables, but what about the corresponding JPA entities and the mappings between them? If I have the following tables (following the jdbcrealm standard):


Won't this result in two entities with a unidirectional @ManyToOne-mapping going from Group to User and wouldn't that be considered to be a "faulty" mapping? The rigidity of the requirements on the table setup when using jdbcrealm with Glassfish appears akward and unintuitive to me.

I agree. Here's the link:
