Hibernate Interview Questions and Answers

Ques. What does it mean to be inverse?

If inverse=”true” in the set variable, it means “stock_daily_record” is the relationship owner, so Stock will NOT UPDATE the relationship.

2. inverse=”false”
If inverse=”false” (default) in the set variable, it means “stock” is the relationship owner, and Stock will UPDATE the relationship.

If keyword “inverse” is not define, the inverse = “false” will be used, which is
