I'm trying to build a relationship between two entities Employee and Address such that an Employee can have multiple Addresses and same Address can be shared among multiple Employees as well. I took database first approach and created below tables
Third table contains reference ids from first two tables to maintain the many-to-many relationship between Employee and Address. Using these tables I created Entity classes with NHibernate Designer and it created two classes Employee and Address, and added collection of each as below -
In Employee class, the collection of Address is fine, but I don't want to have Employee collection in Address class. I tried to remove this association but not able to do that. Without using designer I created my own classes and created own mapping xml and it is working fine with one way association, but I'm willing to use your designer and need your help in removing unwanted associations in many-to-many relationship.
