Hibernate Relationships with XDoclet Tutorial

I finally got around to finishing the Hibernate Relationships tutorial for AppFuse today. This initial version includes a howto for creating the UI with Struts. In the future, I'll add sections for creating the UI with Spring MVC, WebWork, Tapestry and JSF. Those should be easy now that the hard part is done. This is a first cut at this tutorial, so it's likely there's issues, bugs and things I did wrong.

Now it's your turn. If you have a chance, please try it out and let us know how we can improve it.

This is awesome. Thanks for getting around to this. I have done something similar with appfused project; so, I will definitely look at what's different.

Good job. Just a question about Hibernate Relationships and many-to-many associations in AppFuse. Can we put an attribute is the new table (eg : a date or something like that)? With your xdoclet's method this's not possible ! So, the first answer is to create a new class WebLogUser with a composite-id (composed by a id User and an Id Web Log). But hibernate's doclet does not handle composite-id (i'm not sure ...) and in my mind hibernate don't like composite id. Have you an idea about this problem? (Sorry for my bad english ...) Thanks
