ActiveObjects: Collections of basic types for as fields?

Hi there,

with hibernate there is a fairly straightforward way to have Collections of basic types as a type for the field of an entity. e.g. a field with the type of Set<String>.


I can't find any evidence that this is possible with activeObjects - is it?

Hi Claudio,

There is no something like ElementCollection/CollectionTable in AO,

Only way is to have parent-child DB relation and then in parent entity you have @OneToMany:

// I guess that reverse is optional if you only one relation between parent-child tables
@OneToMany(reverse = "getParentEntity")
public ChildEntity[] getChildEnitities();

But ChildEntity would have to implement Entity, right? I.e. you couldn't do

public String[] getNames()

could you? I have tried that of course, but I was wondering if I might just have missed something.

Thanks for your answer, btw :smile:
