understanding  hibernate mapping tutorial

Here i have attached a  hibernate  Event.hbm.xml file.

I have a query here .

note , we have an entry
<id name="id" column="uid" type="long" unsaved-value="null">  

and also we have entry...

<set name="speakers" cascade="all">
            <key column="event_id"/>
            <one-to-many class="Speaker"/>
        </set>


does that mean hibernate will automatically understand  "id" column  in Event table is a foreign key  "event_id"  column in Speaker table ?

How hibernate will understand that ?i don't see any foreign key tag in the mapping file ....so i am bit confused at this part.

I am not sure , how hibernate will relate these two column .  because i think whenever a value say "1" is saved in "id" field , there will also "1" be saved in event_id column because of this mapping file....right ?

that specifies which column is the foreign key for a Speaker
And as it is specified in the Event mapping then it relates to the Event class

the DDL has been given as below in the tutorial

create table events (uid int ,
name varchar,
start_date date,
duration integer,
location_id int)


create table speakers (uid int,
firstName varchar,
lastName varchar,
event_id int)


but  there is no FK constraint put in this  DDL  .....shall  we need to put constraints here ?
