Active Objects ManyToMany reverse and through

How to use the reverse() and through() values for the @ManyToMany annotation?

Example;

@Table("KeychainUser")
public interface KeychainUserAO extends Entity {

@ManyToMany(value = UserAuthorizationAO.class, through = "getKeychainUser", reverse = "getUsers")
    PermissionAO[] getPermissions();

// next class, the 'through' class?

@Table("UserAuthorization")
public interface UserAuthorizationAO extends Entity {

    void setKeychainUser(KeychainUserAO keychainUser);

    KeychainUserAO getKeychainUser();

    void setPermission(PermissionAO permission);

    PermissionAO getPermission();
}

// the 'reverse' class?

@Table("Permission")
public interface PermissionAO extends Entity { 
    @ManyToMany(value = UserAuthorizationAO.class, through = "getPermission", reverse = "getPermissions")
    KeychainUserAO[] getUsers();
}

// exception
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: public abstract nl.avisi.confluence.plugins.keychain.model.ao.KeychainUserAO[] nl.avisi.confluence.plugins.keychain.model.ao.PermissionAO.getUsers() has a ManyToMany annotation with an invalid reverse element value. It must be the name of the corresponding getter method on the joining entity.



This doesn't work.

Answer below;

KeychainUser class

@ManyToMany(value = UserAuthorizationAO.class, through = "getPermission", reverse = "getKeychainUser")
    PermissionAO[] getPermissions();

UserAuthorization class

void setKeychainUser(KeychainUserAO keychainUser);

    KeychainUserAO getKeychainUser();

    void setPermission(PermissionAO permission);

    PermissionAO getPermission();

Permission class

@ManyToMany(value = UserAuthorizationAO.class, through = "getKeychainUser", reverse = "getPermission")
    KeychainUserAO[] getUsers();

Hi Patrick,

I'm not sure, but I think this should be:

@Table("KeychainUser")
public interface KeychainUserAO extends Entity {
 
@ManyToMany(value = UserAuthorizationAO.class, through = "getKeychainUser", reverse = "getPermission")
    PermissionAO[] getPermissions();
} 

 
@Table("UserAuthorization")
public interface UserAuthorizationAO extends Entity {
 
    void setKeychainUser(KeychainUserAO keychainUser);
 
    KeychainUserAO getKeychainUser();
 
    void setPermission(PermissionAO permission);
 
    PermissionAO getPermission();
}
 
@Table("Permission")
public interface PermissionAO extends Entity {
    @ManyToMany(value = UserAuthorizationAO.class, through = "getPermission", reverse = "getKeychainUser")
    KeychainUserAO[] getUsers();
}

Thanks for your answer! I'll try this once I've got the time for it.
