Spring and MongoDB manual references

Hi everyone,

I need advice on doing manual references in mongodb with spring without using dbrefs.

If for example, I have two document collections:

User {
addresses: [addressId1, addressId2...]

Address {

So, user has 1 or more addresses. In user document, I want to use array of address ids.

Now, there is a question of inserting, updating and retrieving user document.

For insertion, I would need one POJO which has addresses as array of ids (array of ObjectIds, Strings..).

For retrieving, sometimes I need full document with addresses eagerly populated. For this case I would need different POJO which has addresses as array of address objects.

Is there any good approach to this? Any pieces of advice?
Yes, my master! Here is the tiny ad you asked for:
Java file APIs (DOC, XLS, PDF, and many more)
