What you're requesting is the delete-orphan cascade style.
You'll be able to define it as an Hibernate specific annotation, but it is not part of the spec :-(
I don't see the annotation documented anywhere, I'm assuming it does not yet exist. Any additional info on when this might be available?
I can't believe the EJB spec left it out... feels like a pretty big hole to me.
Thanks fellas -- you guys rock.
Well it's not a hole that big. That's very convinient to have it though :-)
This is brand new and only accessed through Hibernate Annotations CVS right now
