Hi,

What kind of mapping will we have if we have additional fields in middle table, other than the foreign keys connecting the 2 tables?

Existing:

Student(key:studentid, column:name)
Student_courses (foreign keys studentid and courseid) <---middle table
Courses(key:courseid, column:description)

New:

Student(key:studentid, column:name)
Student_courses (foreign keys studentid and courseid, ADDITIONAL FIELDS: 2 NON-KEY FIELDS: STARTDATE AND ENDDATE) <---middle table
Courses(key:courseid, column:description)

As seen above, i added startdate and enddate, 2 strings.

Existing hibernate will be like this:



and



Will you let me know how the new one will be?

In that case you'd have an entity representing the middle table, and you'd break it down into two many-to-one relationships.
