org.hibernate.TransientObjectException: object references an unsaved transient instance - save the transient instance before flushing

The Solution to org.hibernate.TransientObjectException: object references an unsaved transient instance - save the transient instance before flushing is


your issue will be resolved by properly defining cascading depedencies or by saving the referenced entities before saving the entity that references. Defining cascading is really tricky to get right because of all the subtle variations in how they are used.

Here is how you can define cascades:

@Entity
public class Userrole implements Serializable {

    private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

    @Id
    @GeneratedValue(strategy=GenerationType.AUTO)
    private long userroleid;

    private Timestamp createddate;

    private Timestamp deleteddate;

    private String isactive;

    //bi-directional many-to-one association to Role
    @ManyToOne(cascade = CascadeType.ALL)
    @JoinColumn(name="ROLEID")
    private Role role;

    //bi-directional many-to-one association to User
    @ManyToOne(cascade = CascadeType.ALL)
    @JoinColumn(name="USERID")
    private User user;

}

In this scenario, every time you save, update, delete, etc Userrole, the assocaited Role and User will also be saved, updated...

Again, if your use case demands that you do not modify User or Role when updating Userrole, then simply save User or Role before modifying Userrole

Additionally, bidirectional relationships have a one-way ownership. In this case, User owns Bloodgroup. Therefore, cascades will only proceed from User -> Bloodgroup. Again, you need to save User into the database (attach it or make it non-transient) in order to associate it with Bloodgroup.
