If you have a "1" table that is 1:M with two tables, how do you represent that in JPA @OneToMany Annotation?

If I try to have two @OneToMany annotations in my "1" side Java class, I get an duplicate annotation error.

So, what I'm asking is that if you have some type of, say, "ID" (from the 1 table) that can appear multiple times in two (different) tables, how do you represent this with a single @OneToMany annotation on the "1" side?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

I don't completely understand what you are trying to do.

Do you want the result sets from two unique tables to be merged into a single result set?

I think my problem was that I had the relationship backwards. We're doing forward engineering with no DB (yet) to test against so it's a bit more difficult...

Thanks.

Glad you got things squared away.
