I am using hibernate 3, If a student has an array of courses (bi directional), how to write hbm.XML and database schema.
public class Student{
        private Long sid;
        private String name;
        private List<Course> courses;
public lass Course{
         private Long cid;
         private String courseName;
         private Student student;

I also found following comments in the link mentioned below:


It's much simpler: If you map the same foreign key column twice, you need to "disable" one side by making it inverse. Which side varies.

If I have a one-to-many with a persistent List or Map, I'd make that side inverse="false" and the many-to-one should be disabled for updating/insertion with insert="false" and update="false".

If I have one-to-many with a persistent Set, I'd make that side inverse="true" and let the many-to-one update/insert the foreign key column.

If I have a many-to-many with a persistent Set on both sides, I can pick which side is "disabled", no difference.

If I have a many-to-many with a persistent List or Map on one of the sides, I need to enable that side and disable the other side (otherwise the index/map key of that list or map isn't stored.)
