(Off-topic: are you keeping a list of the swear words the students use? ;) It's "course", not "curse" :)

Thank you for your comments! It's meaning course, of course :mrgreen:

What do you mean by "edit", update?

You cannot update a primary key. You should delete the UserCurse object, and add a new one to the different Curse.

For an insert, you can just create the new UserCurse and set its Id.

Simple update courseId, for example...

Before:
Curses
curse_id semester_id ....
old 2010
old2 2010

Users_curses
curse_id semester_id user_id ...
old 2010 shark300

After:
Curses
curse_id semester_id ....
new 2010
old2 2010

Users_curses
curse_id semester_id user_id ...
new 2010 shark300

Any idea for editing Curse entity?

As James points out, editing a primary key == inserting a new record. So I'd do what he's already suggested, delete the existing records and a a new one.

This code don't create row in Users_Course... I know, if I create some new instances of UserCourse with "modifiedCourseId" courseId, rows are created.
But if this row is edited, I have to edit all instance in database, where courseId is "sub-primary key".

Any idea for editing Curse entity?
