hibernate @OneToMany(mappedBy=

In the docs for hibernate I was reading:

Since many to one are (almost) always the owner side of a bidirectional relationship in the EJB3 spec, the one to many association is annotated by @OneToMany( mappedBy=... )

public class Troop {
    public Set<Soldier> getSoldiers() {

public class Soldier {
    private Troop troop;
    public Troop getTroop() {

My question:
the mappedBy is pointing at the name of the variable "troop" and not the class name right?

Hi wrynn,

Yes. Troop has a bidirectional one to many relationship with Soldier through the troop property.

Hope this help,
