Hello!

I wonder if its possible to fetch only the IDs of the associated
collection objects instead of the full blown entity. Lets say I have a
User object hat can have 0..n orders assigned to him. But I only want to
have the order IDs in the collection in the User entity.
Collection<String> orders;
instead of
Collection<UserOrder> orders;

Any ideas?

Thanks
Phil

You can use a @BasicCollection in EclipseLink (1.1) or an
@ElementCollection in JPA 2.0 (EclipseLink 2.0) to define this type of
relationship. You would probably also want to make the relationship
read-only.
