    Using a collection mapped in an entity as a @DataModel

    Rafael Ferreira Newbie

      Is it possible to use a collection attribute of one of my entities as the underlying data for an @DataModel in a bean?


      For instance, say you have an entity


      @Entity 
      public class Library {
        @OneToMany
        private List<Book> books;
        public List<Book> getBooks() {return books;}
      }
      



      And a bean:


      @Name("libraryManager")
      public class LibraryManager {
        @In private Library library;
      
      }
      



      I wanted to use the list of books in the Library object as a source of data for an @DataModel. Is there any way to do this directly, or I must resort to having a List<Book> attribute in the bean and manually synchronize changes with the library object.
