I have a many-to-many relationship between user and role entities. when I try to merge a new role by adding new user objects to that, after merging i expect a new row in the joined table (in sql server database) to be inserted but nothing happens and I really don't know what the problem could be. Would you please check this out. Thanks in advance. Smile

@ManyToMany(fetch = FetchType.EAGER, cascade = CascadeType.ALL)
            name = "SEC_USER_ROLE",
            joinColumns = {
                @JoinColumn(name = "SEC_USER_ID", referencedColumnName = "SEC_USERS")},
            inverseJoinColumns = {
                @JoinColumn(name = "SEC_ROLE_ID", referencedColumnName = "SEC_ROLES")})
    private List<Role> roles;  

@ManyToMany(mappedBy = "roles", fetch = FetchType.EAGER, cascade = CascadeType.ALL)
private List<User> users;

@Transactional(readOnly = false, propagation = Propagation.REQUIRED)
public T merge(T o) {

    o = em.merge(o);
    return o;

If you are only modifying one side of the relationship and calling merge, that is the source of your problem. You have a bidirectional relationship and since the user->Role side is set to own the relationship in the database, that side needs to be set for the changes to be synchronized into the database. JPA mandates though that you modify both sides of your bidirectional relationship to ensure they remain in synch with the database - it will not modify your pojo's for you.
