Q: Hi all! [mehmet.sariyar@rizit.at @ 04.01.09:15:55:43 wrote] Although tried any modifications described in the "how-to's", I wasn't already able to build up an inheritance using concept of setting superclasses primary-key as primary-and-foreign-key of the subclass. Everything is well functioning, the primitive fields of the superclass are been loaded together with the loaded subclass. BUT reference-descriptors and collection-descriptiors described in the super-class will be ignored, not give damn about them!

Here a look-like :

<class-descriptor class="A" table="A">

  • <field-descriptor id="0" name="pk_aid" column="PK_AID" jdbc-type="INTEGER" primarykey="true"


  • <field-descriptor id="1" name="fk_broadid" column="FK_BroadID?" jdbc-type="INTEGER"/> <field-descriptor id="2" name="fk_userid" column="FK_UserID?" jdbc-type="INTEGER"/> <field-descriptor id="3" name="name" column="Name" jdbc-type="VARCHAR"/> <field-descriptor id="4" name="unittyp" column="UnitTyp?" jdbc-type="CHAR"/> <!-- begin:references -->

    • <reference-descriptor name="broad" class-ref="Broad"

      • auto-retrieve="true" auto-update="false" auto-delete="false">

      • <foreignkey field-ref="fk_broadid"/>

      </reference-descriptor> <reference-descriptor name="user" class-ref="User"

      • auto-retrieve="true" auto-update="false" auto-delete="false">

      • <foreignkey field-ref="fk_userid"/>


    <!-- end:references --> <!-- begin:collections -->

    • <collection-descriptor name="allCasts" element-class-ref="Cast"

      • auto-retrieve="true" auto-update="true" auto-delete="true"

        orderby="pk_castid" sort="ASC">

      • <inverse-foreignkey field-ref="fk_aid"/>

      </collection-descriptor> <collection-descriptor name="allHistories" element-class-ref="History"

      • auto-retrieve="true" auto-update="true" auto-delete="true"

        orderby="pk_historyid" sort="ASC">

      • <inverse-foreignkey field-ref="fk_aid"/>


    <!-- end:collections -->


<class-descriptor class="B" table="B">

  • <field-descriptor id="0" name="fk_aid" <!-- in RDBMS it is a primary-key and a foreign-key-reference in one -->

    • column="FK_AID" jdbc-type="INTEGER" primarykey="true"/>

    <field-descriptor id="1" name="fk_clientid" column="FK_ClientID?" jdbc-type="INTEGER"/> <!-- begin:references -->

    • <reference-descriptor name="super" class-ref="A"

      • auto-retrieve="true" auto-update="true" auto-delete="true">

      • <foreignkey field-ref="fk_aid"/>

      </reference-descriptor> <reference-descriptor name="client" class-ref="Client"

      • auto-retrieve="true" auto-update="true" auto-delete="true">

      • <foreignkey field-ref="fk_clientid"/>


    <!-- end:references -->


Does anyone have any experience with CONCEPT#3 of Inheritance O/R-Mapping ?
