Hibernate Many to Many Self Join using Annotations

In this section, you will learn how to do many to many self join using Annotations in Hibernate.

In many to many self join table,  a table is related to itself using bridge table. In the below example,  faculty table has many to many relationship where every faculty is coworker and every coworker is faculty. The faculty table has self join many to many relationship using faculty_coworker

The project hierarchy is given below :

Database table query :

The query used to create a faculty table is given below :

CREATE TABLE `faculty` ( 
`faculty_id` bigint(10) NOT NULL auto_increment, 
`firstname` varchar(50) default NULL, 
`lastname` varchar(50) default NULL, 
PRIMARY KEY (`faculty_id`) 
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 

The query used to create a faculty_coworker table is given below :

CREATE TABLE `faculty_coworker` ( 
`faculty_id` bigint(10) NOT NULL, 
`coworker_id` bigint(10) NOT NULL, 
PRIMARY KEY (`faculty_id`,`coworker_id`), 
KEY `FK_coworker` (`coworker_id`), 
CONSTRAINT `FK_coworker` FOREIGN KEY (`coworker_id`) REFERENCES `faculty` (`faculty_id`), 
CONSTRAINT `FK_faculty` FOREIGN KEY (`faculty_id`) REFERENCES `faculty` (`faculty_id`) 
) ENGINE=InnoDB DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1
