Relational Mappings (ELUG)
For the latest EclipseLink documentation, please see http://www.eclipse.org/eclipselink/documentation/
A relational mapping transforms any object data member type to a corresponding relational database (SQL) data source representation in any supported relational database. Relational mappings let you map an object model into a relational data model.
Consider the following sections:
- Introduction to Relational Mappings – describes each of the different EclipseLink relational mapping types and important relational mapping concepts.
- Configuring a Relational Mapping – explains how to configure EclipseLink relational mapping options common to two or more relational mapping types.
