I have this scenario, where i have three tables.

TABLE A has a_id (PK)
TABLE B has b_id (PK), c_id (FK), a_id (FK)
TABLE C has c_id (PK)

I am using JPA , now in Object terms, if i define the relationships, it is like

Now, if want to have class B as self referencing class, i.e If the Object of B will have an extra property of parentId, which refers to the different B object, then how to achieve that and code sample of how can i persist A object with all the relationships set to it directly by calling entityManager.saveobject(a);


A object contains collection of B objects which are say b1, b2, b3 and b2 and b3 object in that collection has parentId set as b1_id.
I want to save Object A such that all the records of B also gets saved normally without giving any transaction exception of transient object not being saved.

If anyone of you here can help me out in this, this will be really a great help.

It's a tiny ad. At least, that's what she said.
a bit of art, as a gift, that will fit in a stocking
