PluralAttribute#isAssociation returns true for @ElementCollection

Description

the method is implemented to always return true:

org.hibernate.jpa.internal.metamodel.PluralAttributeImpl

1 2 3 4 @Override public boolean isAssociation() { return true; }

but it should be:

org.hibernate.jpa.internal.metamodel.PluralAttributeImpl

1 2 3 4 5 @Override public boolean isAssociation() { return getPersistentAttributeType() == PersistentAttributeType.ONE_TO_MANY || getPersistentAttributeType() == PersistentAttributeType.MANY_TO_MANY; }

to exclude @ElementCollection attributes, which are NOT associations in terms of entity model, just like @Embedded attributes are not associations for SingularAttribute
