Hi,

I have to create an Administrator Role with few  users assigned to it. I have create , update and remove functionality for the same.

I have a model : AdministratorModel which has a List of another model: AdministratorUserModel in it. Please find the code attached for this.

When i pass a list of new users assigned to the role and update it using merge function in JPA, it works fine.If i need to remove already existing Users, then i need to pass a new list of users without the user who is removed to merge function and it should ideally remove the users from database, but it is not happening.

I request you to look into the code and advice me on why remove record is not working. Please advice.
AdministratorModel:	

@OneToMany(fetch = FetchType.EAGER, cascade = CascadeType.ALL)
	@JoinColumn(name = "adid", nullable = false)
	private List<AdministratorUserModel> adminUserList;


AdministratorDAOImpl:

	public AdministratorModel update(AdministratorModel adminModel)
			throws Exception {
		this.entityManager = getEntityManager();
		EntityTransaction tx = entityManager.getTransaction();
		try {
			tx.begin();
			adminModel = entityManager.merge(adminModel);
			tx.commit();
		} catch (Exception e) {
			e.printStackTrace();
			throw e;
		} finally {
			if (tx.isActive()) {
				tx.rollback();
			}
			entityManager.close();
		}
		return adminModel;
	}

Please find attached the table design
CREATE TABLE  "ETW_ADMINISTRATOR_USERS" 
   (	"ADID" NUMBER(38,0) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	"STATUS" VARCHAR2(20), 
	"AD_USERKEY" NUMBER(38,0) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	"USER_KEY" NUMBER(38,0) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	 CONSTRAINT "PK_ETW_ADMIN_USERS" PRIMARY KEY ("AD_USERKEY") ENABLE, 
	 CONSTRAINT "FK_ETW_ADMIN_USERS_ADMIN" FOREIGN KEY ("ADID")
	  REFERENCES  "ETW_ADMINISTRATOR" ("ADID") ENABLE, 
	 CONSTRAINT "FK_ETW_ADMINI_USER_USERS" FOREIGN KEY ("USER_KEY")
	  REFERENCES  "ETW_USERS_DETAILS" ("USER_KEY") ENABLE
   )
/

CREATE TABLE  "ETW_ADMINISTRATOR_USERS" 
   (	"ADID" NUMBER(38,0) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	"STATUS" VARCHAR2(20), 
	"AD_USERKEY" NUMBER(38,0) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	"USER_KEY" NUMBER(38,0) NOT NULL ENABLE, 
	 CONSTRAINT "PK_ETW_ADMIN_USERS" PRIMARY KEY ("AD_USERKEY") ENABLE, 
	 CONSTRAINT "FK_ETW_ADMIN_USERS_ADMIN" FOREIGN KEY ("ADID")
	  REFERENCES  "ETW_ADMINISTRATOR" ("ADID") ENABLE, 
	 CONSTRAINT "FK_ETW_ADMINI_USER_USERS" FOREIGN KEY ("USER_KEY")
	  REFERENCES  "ETW_USERS_DETAILS" ("USER_KEY") ENABLE
   )

try instead removing the users from the list using the clear() method

It did not help. I guess, there is something related to the keys in the two tables.

I am trying to achieve the same using JPA. The merge method is not working as expected, I guess, I am doing something wrong with the mapping. Please advice.

The merge is not updating the link tables with respect to the primary key rather it is inserting a new row. Please advice.
