It appears that when we attempt to remove an entity the relationships within that entities @JoinTable are not removed.
The result is a SQL error that indicates that a "child record was found".

The confusing thing is that this code is fine in Hibernate. What is different in eclispselink?
With EclipseLink do children records have to explicitly be removed?
Did not see an annotation that would help...
Any input is appreciated.

Following is the code that attempts to remove the record and its children.

public void delete( RecipientPackageDeliveryPK id ) throws DataNotFoundException
RecipientPackageDelivery recipientPackageDelivery = entityManager.find( RecipientPackageDelivery.class, id );

entityManager.remove( recipientPackageDelivery );
recipientPackageDelivery = null;

Following is the entity envolved and the @JoinTable...

@Table( name = "CMM029" )
@Inheritance( strategy = InheritanceType.JOINED )
@DiscriminatorColumn( name = "DELIVERY_CHNL_ID", discriminatorType = DiscriminatorType.INTEGER )
public abstract class RecipientPackageDelivery implements Serializable

/** The documents. */
@JoinTable( name = "CMM031", joinColumns = { @JoinColumn( name = "PACKAGE_ID", referencedColumnName = "PACKAGE_ID" ),
@JoinColumn( name = "RECIPIENT_CDE", referencedColumnName = "RECIPIENT_CDE" ),
@JoinColumn( name = "DELIVERY_CHNL_ID", referencedColumnName = "DELIVERY_CHNL_ID" ) }, inverseJoinColumns = { @JoinColumn( name = "DOCUMENT_ID", referencedColumnName = "DOCUMENT_ID" ) } )
private List<Document> documents;

Can you try calling refresh after the find and see if that helps? Does the Document have a back references to RecipientPackageDelivery? Which version/build are you using?
