I continent-country-city entities (all different tables). I map both collections (Continent: List<Country> and Country: List<City>) as this:

Code:
@OneToMany(mappedBy="child", orphanRemoval=true, cascade=CascadeType.ALL)
   @Valid
   @NotNull
   @Size(min=1)


Lets say continent has 1 country and that country has 1 city in DB. I recreate exactly the same structure using 'new' keyword (with all ids set as if it was loaded from db). So I have 1 existing record on each level. Then I add to the collection of continent.countries new Country(new City) with some data set. When I try to call session.merge(continent) I'm getting a NotNull constraint error saying property cities can not be null. I think it complains about that newly created Country and its City. But If I remove that @NotNull constraint of the List<City> it works ok and populates a collection of List<City> cities with 1 record. So why does it complain at all?

In short:
session.merge(continent) updates existing countries and its cities. It also creates a newly added country and its newly added city. But it happens only when used without @NotNull on cities collection.

Hi,

I'm not sure what's causing this issue. It would help to see the source code of your entities, in particular how the collection-typed members are initialized.
