Class LikeEntity

  • public class LikeEntity
    extends Object
    Represents a like entity.

    Likes should be modelled as a value type, but hibernate only permits value types if they are stored in the same table as the entity type they belong to. In our use case we need a separate table for likes.

    The compromise is to model likes as an entity (so we get the separate table), but just ignore the database ID.

    This class should not be used outside the DAO. All client code should be interacting with the transfer object Like.
