hibernate ordering a set
hibernate ordering a set ¬†using -'java,hibernate,order,criteria'
I have a class Person who has a set of Books. It is not meaningful in the particular case to have an ordered or sorted collection.
Say now that I have a search page with a table showing the join of Person and Book. I want to be able to sort the results by fields from both Person AND Book, and then get a List from Hibernate, and iterate over it.
Because the collection is a Set, the ordering of the Books has vanished (PersistentSet of Hibernate wraps a HashSet of Books, which is not ordered).
So, with this approach I cannot have results also ordered by Book fields.
If I change the collection from Set to List, my model is semantically incorrect. There is no meaning for keeping order in the model.
Is there an approach to keep the ordering of Books? Perhaps there is a way for the PersistentSet to wrap a LinkedHashSet (which is ordered), where the order is defined by my search Criteria?
