I have an entity, Journal, which has a Many-to-One relationship with a second entity, DeliveryType. The mapping is expressed as:

@Table(name = "JOURNAL")
public class Journal implements Serializable, Comparable<Journal> {

@ManyToOne(fetch = FetchType.EAGER)
@JoinColumn(name = "DELIVERY_TYPE_ID")
private DeliveryType deliveryType;


DeliveryType is merely a static look-up table with 6 values. It should never be persisted. Its ID should just be written as a foreign key to the Journal table.

query="select s from DeliveryType s where s.isDisplayable = 'Y'" ),
query="select s from DeliveryType s where lower(s.description)=lower(:description)" )
public class DeliveryType implements Serializable, Comparable<DeliveryType> {


The project previously used TopLink, but I don't think the conversion is responsible for the odd behavior. The problem is that when parent entity, Journal is changed (assigned a different DeliveryType), EclipseLink seems to think that the DeliveryType object is a brand new object and does an INSERT op on it, causing a primary key violation. This is suddenly happening with many of our look-up-only entities.

Is there some kind of caching going on that detaches these entities from the PersistenceManager somehow? Why does EclipseLink think they are new and try to save them?
