When auditing a foreign key, Envers seems to be ignoring the JoinColumn annotation.
E.g. I have a simple class like this:
Which references a lookup table like this:
Notice that the addressType attribute on Address is joining to the entityId column, not the primary key "id" column. Also notice the use of RelationTargetAuditMode.NOT_AUDITED : I want to audit the foreign key, but I don't want to Audit changes to AddressTypeLookup. The problem is, when Envers records changes to the foreign key, it's recording the AddressTypeLookup primary key value "id", not the entityId. How do I make Envers record the entityId values used?
[In case you're wondering why I want this: we have a database of lookup data (aka master / reference data). It records history: all rows have effective from/to dates. The id column is properly unique; the entityId identifies a particular thing - e.g. all versions of a particular address type. All the lookup tables are replicated into an application database - but only the current data is replicated, not the historic data. ]
