What is cascading

Cascading is the process of applying the operation happen on the parent to all the childs.

ex: If we apply the delete cascade operation then when parent object is deleted all the associated child objects will be deleted automatically.

Possible values are :----    

  • all
  • |none
  • save-update
  • delete
  • all-delete-orphan

Default value is none.

eg: Set<Long> phones;

<set name="phones" table="phones" cascade="delete">
