Problem with bidirectional link

#1

(I had raised this issue in the past and have finally had time to come back to it and strip down the classes to a minimum).

The problem seems to lie in having bidirectional links (viz, I have @OneToMany Map<String, Entry> children and @ManyToOne Entry parent in my classes. I've attached the offending classes. If I add an entry to the children I get an error. I'm wondering if it's a question of multiple references to the same instance of a class? It's hard to tell with the opaque code of ObjectDB.

#2

Many issues have been fixed since version 2.3.6.

Please try the last ObjectDB version (2.4.0_01) and if the problem still exists it will be examined.

#3

Problem continues with 2.4.0_01 Same traceback as above, but with newer version number in the message.

#4

The cause of the problem is that all the Folder instances are persisted with the same id = 0.

You can easily solve the problem by annotating the id field with @GeneratedValue.

I will check how the error message that ObjectDB produces in this case can be improved.
