So in this example, there are 2 tables :

table people:
id: int
code: int

Id and code are both unique and primary keys.

table something:
id: int
peopleCode: int

In this table id and peopleCode are both primary keys, of course there is no good reason why peopleCode is primary key, it's not a well-designed database, and it has never been used with JPA, but I have to use this old database for a new project.

The two tables are in one to many relation with code-peopleCode, one 'people' has many 'something'. There is no foreign key constraint anyway.

I tried to generate entities from these tables with Eclipse Dali, I added the associations in the wizard, but I got the following error message, and table 'something' hadn't been generated:

Dear Karen,

I have the same problem.
I see the bug is fixed.
How do I apply the fix to my RAD 8.

I'm still learning.


Daniel Kuiper.
