Annotation Type Cascade

  • @Target({METHOD,FIELD})
    public @interface Cascade
    Specifies the persistence operations that should cascade to associated entity instances.

    This annotation competes with the cascade member of JPA association mapping annotations, for example, with OneToMany.cascade(). The only good reason to use it over the standard JPA approach is to enable lock cascading, by writing, for example, @Cascade(LOCK).

    If an association specified cascade types using both the JPA association mapping annotations and this annotation, then the cascade types from the two sources are aggregated.
